ways to increase the effectiveness of safety and health regulations 
that apply to the maritime industries, injury and illness prevention, 
the use of stakeholder partnerships to improve training and outreach 
initiatives, and to increase the national dialogue on occupational 
safety and health. In addition, MACOSH provides advice on enforcement 
initiatives that will help improve the working conditions and the 
safety and health of men and women employed in the maritime industry.
