Through employment of innovative techniques and equipment, Josh has expanded and modernized our operation. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Economics in 2008 and joined the maritime workforce in 2009. Since becoming certificated as a Marine Chemist in 2013, he has performed the majority of our inspections, averaging over 700 per year. His efforts to streamline local shipboard confined space rescue protocol have involved coordination with repair yards and contractors, the North Charleston Fire Department, the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command, and the U.S. Coast Guard. These efforts set important and constructive collaborations into motion, leading to numerous technical training sessions and greater understanding of how all parties can best contribute to rescue scenarios. Josh has served as a sectional delegate on the Marine Chemist Association Executive Committee and currently serves as a member on the Marine Chemist Qualification Board.
