Gas Free Inspections and Issuance of Marine Chemist Certificates

Subsequent to marine chemist inspections, a Marine Chemist Certificate will be provided.  This Certificate details the inspected vessel, client’s information, date and time of the inspection, tests performed and the results thereof, limits of detection of each test, spaces inspected, standard safety designations, and specific instructions for performing all work safely.  Standard safety designations are “ATMOSPHERE SAFE FOR WORKERS”, “NOT SAFE FOR WORKERS”, “ENTER WITH RESTRICTIONS”, “SAFE FOR HOT WORK”, “NOT SAFE FOR HOT WORK”, “SAFE FOR LIMITED HOT WORK”, “SAFE FOR SHIPBREAKING”, “INERTED”, “INERTED FOR FLAMMABLE COMPRESSED GAS”, and “SAFE FOR LAY-UP”.  Marine chemist inspections and Marine Chemist Certificates are performed and written in accordance with NFPA® 306, Standard for the Control of Gas Hazards on Vessels.


Inertions

Inertion can be performed in a tank or hollow structure by filling the area with inert gas so as to prevent the ignition of flammable gas(es) or combustible material(s) during hot work.  This process is sometimes the most efficient method of attaining a SAFE FOR HOT WORK designation as it can be less time consuming, less expensive, and easier than cleaning or filling the affected areas with water.
