Kellie Crete, Gowrie Group’s Safety & Loss Control Manager, presented an engaging seminar on the impact of OSHA regulations on boatyard and marinas. She was a featured speaker at the 2014 International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC), held this year in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Her seminar focused on helping marina and boatyard owners, operators, and managers, as well as dock masters, harbormasters, and boat builders and repairers, understand how they can build working relationship with OSHA. The discussion also addressed boatyard and marina safety as well as how OSHA regulations apply to these types of business.
IMBC Seminar Manager, Sarah Devlin, wrote to Kellie, “The seminar series overall at the 2014 IMBC was very positive and you [Kellie] had a lot to do with that. You knocked it out of the park. Again.” One seminar participant said, “Kellie’s session should be a ‘mandatory’ session for every attendee of IMBC.”
IMBC is the leading marina and boatyard conference. IMBC is where dedicated marine professionals gather to exchange information, talk about the future of the industry, explore new methods and techniques, receive updates on revised standards and established rules, and discover new products. The conference is produced by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI).
