Towboating Careers: Marine Chemist

Marine Chemist:

"A person who has been trained in the handling of hazardous and flammable products, who conducts tests on vessel tanks to see if they are "safe for fire" if repairs are needed to be made, and if they are "safe for men" if the spaces have to be entered.  They also inspect tanks to determine if they are suitable to be loaded with product, then after loading may sample th product, test it and make a report.  The vessel at destination may again be sampled, tested and reported to ensure quality."
