Emergency Response Training

The training program for staff includes specialized courses at the Jamaica Maritime Institute and the Texas A&M University Emergency Institute for fire-fighting; and The Clean Caribbean & Americas for oil spills.
 
Initial orientation of staff includes one week of safety orientation and one week of fire-fighter training. Other safety training is conducted on an ongoing basis, both externally and in-house. This training sometimes includes the participation of the municipal response agencies.
All Petrojam personnel, particularly its Safety and Environment team, are fully trained to act in all emergencies.
