OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 CH-1 March 22, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

SUBJECT: Memorandum of Understanding Between the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the United States Coast Guard

A. Purpose. This instruction provides national guidelines for the interpretation and implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the United States Coast Guard, which became effective December 7, 1980, concerning the Occupational Safety and Health of personnel working on the Outer Continental Shelf of the States. (See Appendix A.).

B. Scope. This instruction applies OSHA-wide.

C. Action. OSHA Regional Administrations/Area Directors shall ensure that OSHA responsibilities are carried out in accordance with G. and Appendix A of this instruction. In situations that differ from the examples given in G., an attempt shall be made to apply the basic intent of the MOU as stated in F. of this instruction.

D. Federal Program Change. This instruction describes a Federal program change which affects State programs. Each Regional Administrator shall:

1. Ensure that this change is forwarded to each State designee.
2. Explain the technical content of the change to the State designee as requested.
3. Ensure that State designees are asked to acknowledge receipt of this Federal program change in writing, within 30 days of notification, to the Regional Administrator. This acknowledgment should include a description either of the State's plan to implement the change or of the reasons why the change should not apply to that State.
4. Review policies, instructions and guidelines issued by the State to determine that this change has been communicated to State program personnel. Routine

OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 March 22, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

monitoring activities (accompanied inspections and case file reviews) shall also he used to determine if this change has been implemented by actual performance.

E. State Plan States.

1. The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1333) provides that "the subsoil and seabed of the Outer Continental Shelf" and "all devices permanently or temporarily attached to the seabed" are areas of "exclusive Federal jurisdiction." Thus, States and Health jurisdiction over working conditions on these sites.
2. This exclusion does not pertain to such islands or structures which are located within the area of the territorial sea. (For State jurisdiction, see Figure 1.) However, when State plan States receive a complaint or notice of an accident, the State shall discuss the matter with the local Coast Guard District Office prior to initiating any action. In addition, any complaints or accident notices received involving worksites located on the Outer Continental Shelf (outside State jurisdiction) shall be forwarded to the local Coast Guard District Office for their action by the State.

F. Background. The "Outer Continental Shelf" as used in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act Amendments (P.L.95-372) September 18, 1978, means that portion of the Continental Margin lying beyond State boundaries within U.S. Federal jurisdiction.

1. The Continental Margin consists of the Continental Shelf, the Continental Slope and the Continental Rise. Bounding the Continental Slope Margin is the land (Continent) on one side and the deep seabed on the other. (See Figure 1, page 3.)

OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

2. The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act expands the U.S. Coast Guard's role for Safety and Health on the Outer Continental Shelf. By these amendments, Congress has indicated that it expects the U.S. Coast Guard to be the principal Federal Agency on matters of safety and health; as well as continuing the present role it exercises for safety of vessels, diving, artificial islands, fixed drill rigs, etc.
3. OSHA's authority is derived from the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The very broad coverage of this Act expressly includes the OCS (29 U.S.C. 653(a)). Because of this broad coverage, Section 4(b)(1) was included in the OSHA Act to preclude the application of OSHA standards to working conditions addressed by another agency's regulations or standards.
4. Section 208 of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act expressly preserved the provisions of the OSH Act, including the OSH Act's application to the Shelf and to all hazardous working conditions except those addressed by other agencies' standards. Section 208, which amends Section 21 of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act states: "Nothing in this Act shall affect the authority provided by law to the Secretary of Labor for the protection of Occupational Safety and Health...."
5. The 1978 amendments to the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act greatly increased the Coast Guard's authority to promulgate and enforce safety and health standards on the Shelf. The Coast Guard, with its issuance of a diving standard, has already begun to implement Congress' instructions. OSHA fully supports the Coast Guard's intention to promulgate additional standards to protect workers on the shelf. However, OSHA, under Section 4(b)(1) of the OSH Act, still has responsibility for any hazardous working condition for which the Coast Guard has not yet promulgated enforceable standards. As the Coast Guard promulgates more standards OSHA's application to OCS workplaces will diminish.

4
OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming
6. OSHA has been actively cooperating with the Coast Guard's standards development projects. The agency has assisted the Coast Guard in identifying and collecting for Coast Guard promulgation those OSHA standards relevant to inspected vessels and shall assist in more projects in the future.
7. A Coast Guard investigation alone, however, does not relieve OSHA of its responsibilities. At the present time there exists a substantial number of working conditions on offshore oil/gas rigs which OSHA addresses under its standards applicable to general industry and construction, for which the Coast Guard has yet to promulgate standards.
8. The Memorandum of Understanding entered into by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the United States Coast Guard sets forth procedures intended to avoid duplication of issuance of citations of violations and regulatory overlap while still retaining the agencies' mutual responsibilities.

G. Requirements.

1. Sections I, II and III of the MOU (Appendix A) provide a general description of the purpose of the MOU, a description of the "Working Conditions" on the Outer Continental Shelf, and outline each agency's responsibility under the Act.
2. Section IV A enumerates five areas pertaining to standards development and promulgation which will be the responsibility of the headquarters staff of both agencies. OSHA National Office staff may require assistance from the field on specific projects associated with standards research and development. In such cases appropriate contact and inquiries through channels shall be made by the National Office staff of the pertinent Field Office.
3. Section IV B, Items a.-e. listed below, are statements of authorities, procedures and specifics to be followed in carrying out the intent of the MOU.

5

OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

a. Routine enforcement activities (Section IV B.1.c., where the Coast Guard does not exercise statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards affecting Occupational Safety and Health on the OCS) shall not be conducted by the concerned OSHA Field Office prior to discussion with the local Coast Guard District Office as to the procedures the OSHA Office intends to follow.
b. General schedule inspections in the absence of a request by the Coast Guard shall be cause for the Area Director to seek permission from the OSHA National Office, Office of Field Coordination and Experimental Programs, prior to conducting such an inspection.
c. Allegations of violations (complaints) of applicable OSHA requirements shall be referred to the Commander of the local Coast Guard District Office for action. (Appendix B lists the Coast Guard district offices.)
(1) The complainant shall be informed of the above action and also will be given the Office address and telephone number of the appropriate Coast Guard District Office.
(2) The OSHA office receiving the complaints shall maintain a record of complaints and shall periodically monitor the action taken by the Coast Guard. This will be entered in the record.
(3) Written and oral complaints shall be forwarded to the Coast Guard within a reasonable time. Additionally, oral complaints shall be transcribed and forwarded to the Coast Guard for confirmation purposes.
(4) If the Coast Guard requests assistance for disposition of the complaints, OSHA will assist accordingly.

6

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING

BETWEEN THE

UNITED STATES COAST GUARD,

THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

AND THE
           OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION,
                       THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
  CONCERNING OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ON ARTIFICIAL ISLANDS,
                 INSTALLATIONS AND OTHER DEVICES ON
          THE OUTER CONTINENTAL SHELF OF THE UNITED STATES

I. PURPOSE-The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding is to establish procedures to increase consultation and coordination between the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with respect to matters affecting the occupational safety and health personnel working on the Outer Continental Shelf of the United States.

II. DEFINITION-For purposes of the Memorandum, the following definition applies:

Working Conditions on the Outer Continental Shelf of the United States

Working Conditions related to activities, including diving, taking place on or from, on the waters adjacent to, or otherwise associated with artificial islands, installations, or other devices permanently or temporarily attached to the seabed and exploring for, developing or producing resources from the Outer Continental Shelf of the United States, or any device (other than ship or vessel) used for the purpose of transporting such resources(43 U.S.C. 1333(a)(1)).

III. AGENCY RESPONSIBILITIES

A. United States Coast Guard

The USCG has authority to promulgate and enforce Safety and Health Relations working on the OCS of the United States. In carrying out this responsibility on the OCS the Coast Guard will cooperate with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to maximize the safety and health protection of employees, avoid duplication of effort, and avoid undue burdens on the maritime industry. The USCG, consistent with its statutory authority:

1. Promulgates regulations and may modify any regulation, interim or final, applying to hazardous working conditions related to activities on the Outer Continental Shelf, and promulgates such other regulations as may be necessary to promote the safety of life and property on the OCS;

A-1

OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

2. Promulgates regulations to provide for scheduled onsite inspection, at least once a year, of each facility on the Outer Continental Shelf which is subject to any environmental, safety or health regulation promulgated by the Coast Guard pursuant to the OCS Act*, and also provides for periodic onsite inspection without advance notice to the operator of such facility to assure compliance with such environmental, health or safety regulations;
3. Reviews any allegation from any person of the existence of a violation of a safety or health regulation or other unsafe working conditions.
4. Investigates and makes a public report on any death or serious injury occurring as a result of operations conducted pursuant to the OCS Act, and may investigate and report on other injuries, casualties or accidents.
5. Initiates appropriate civil and criminal procedures and other actions to enforce any provision of the OCS Act or any regulation issued under the Act.
B. Occupational Safety and Health Administration

The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHAct)** applies with respect to working conditions on Outer Continental Shelf Lands (29 USC 653(a)), but does not apply to working conditions with respect to which the Coast Guard or other Federal agencies exercise statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards affecting occupational safety and health (29 USC 653(b)(1), Sec. 21(d) of the OCS Act). The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will cooperate with the Coast Guard to maximize the safety and health protection of employees, avoid duplication of effort, and avoid undue burdens on the maritime Industry.

Consistent with its statutory authority under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, OSHA:

1. Prescribes occupational safety and health rules and regulations as necessary to carry out its responsibility under the OSHA Act;
2. Inspects and investigates places of employment to insure compliance with any applicable OSHA requirements;

***************

*"OCS Act refers to the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, as Amended (43 USC 1331 et seq).

**"OSH Act" refers to Public Law 91-596, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

A-2
OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming
3. Responds to allegations of violations of applicable OSHA requirements and makes investigations where there are reasonable grounds to believe that a violation exists.
4. Issues citations and initiates appropriate civil and criminal procedures against employers for violations of applicable OSHA requirements;

IV. PROCEDURES

The two agencies agree, consistent with their statutory obligations, to observe the following procedures in carrying out their responsibilities to promote safe working conditions on the OCS:

A. Development and promulgation of standards

The Coast Guard will develop and promulgate necessary regulations to assure safe and healthful working conditions on the OCS. OSHA will continue to promulgate general standards, which may apply to working conditions on the OCS not being regulated by the Coast Guard. In developing regulations and standards, the two agencies will cooperate to the maximum extent possible. Such cooperation will include, but will not be limited to the following:

1. Information and data availability. For the purposes of identifying work hazards, determining accident or illness causes, developing corrective measures, and assessing the impacts of new or revised regulations or standards, the two agencies will exchange data and study results to the extent permitted by law.
2. Standards research and development projects. The two agencies will jointly participate in standards research and development projects of mutual interest and benefit.
3. Review of existing regulations and standards. The two agencies will jointly review existing USCG and OSHA regulations and standards to help identify hazards that require priority attention in Coast Guard regulations development projects;
4. Exchange of technical expertise. Each agency will provide the other with technical support, where feasible, to assist in the review of particular hazards or the development of regulations.
5. Early notice of rulemaking activities. The Coast Guard will provide for OSHA's review and consultation copies of drafts of advance notices which relate to working conditions on the OCS. Likewise, OSHA will provide for the Coast Guard's review and consultation copies of drafts of advance notices of proposed rulemaking, notices of proposed rulemaking, and final rules, which have application to any working condition on the OCS. Publication of any rule, however, is not contingent upon receipt of comments.

A-3

OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming

B. Enforcement of regulations and standards

While OSHA has statutory responsibilities with respect to workplaces on the OCS, the following provisions have been drafted to emphasize the Coast Guard's increasing role for safety and health on the OCS, as provided under the OCS Lands Act Amendments of 1978 (Pub. L 95-372). Through this Act, Congress expressed the expectation that the Coast Guard would be the principal Federal agency in matters of occupational safety and health on the OCS.

1. Routine enforcement activities:

a. The Coast Guard will continue to enforce existing
regulations issued under its authority which affect working conditions on the OCS.

b. The Coast Guard will also enforce any new
occupational safety and health regulations promulgated under its authority affecting working conditions on the OCS.

c. OSHA remains responsible for enforcing
requirements adopted under the OSH Act which apply to working conditions on the OCS for which the Coast Guard or other Federal agencies have not exercised their statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards affecting occupational safety and health. To minimize any duplication which may result from exercising this responsibility, OSHA will consult with the Coast Guard and seek to minimize the need for OSHA's routine inspection activity.
2. Investigation of accidents:

In accordance with regulations issued under its
authority, the Coast Guard will investigate deaths, injuries and other casualties to the OCS Act. In the course of all such investigations, formal and informal, the Coast Guard will cooperate with OSHA regulations related to the casualty or accident. Such cooperation will include: promptly making investigation information available to OSHA; inviting OSHA attendance at Coast Guard formal hearings; and developing lines of inquiry suggested by OSHA. Where a Coast Guard investigation identifies an apparent violation of an applicable OSHA regulation the Coast Guard will promptly notify OSHA and subsequently will cooperate with OSHA with respect to any enforcement action OSHA may undertake. This cooperation may include, but is not limited to, providing transportation, as available; provided, however, OSHA remains responsible for obtaining its own legal right of access to any facility.

A-4
OSHA Instruction CPL 2.46 January 20, 1982 Office of Compliance Programming
3. Investigation of allegations:

The Coast Guard will review any allegation from any
person of the existence of a violation of an occupational safety or health regulation or other unsafe working condition on the OCS and take appropriate action under the circumstances. Copies of complaints of occupational safety or health violations on the OCS received by OSHA will be referred to the appropriate Coast Guard district commander for action. The Coast Guard will notify OSHA as promptly as possible of the disposition of allegations forwarded by OSHA.

V. JOINT TRAINING PROGRAM

The two agencies will review the training needs of agency personnel with responsibilities for matters pertaining to safety and health on the OCS, and will develop programs responsive to these needs.

VI. IMPLEMENTATION.

The Coast Guard and OSHA shall each designate a representative who shall be responsible for coordinating implementation of the provisions of this Memorandum.

VII. EFFECTIVE DATE

This Memorandum is effective upon signature by the parties. It may be amended at any time by mutual written agreement of the agencies and may be terminated by either agency upon thirty days written notice.

VIII.SAVINGS PROVISION

Nothing in this Memorandum shall be deemed to alter, amend, or affect in any way the statutory authority of the Coast Guard or OSHA.

Signed at Washington, DC this 19th day of December, 1979.
