Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health 
(MACOSH); Committee Reestablishment

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Labor.

ACTION: Notice of MACOSH reestablishment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act, as amended (5. U.S.C., App. 2), and after consultation 
with the General Services Administration, the Secretary of Labor 
intends to reestablish the Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational 
Safety and Health. The Committee will better enable OSHA to perform the 
duties imposed by the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970 
(29 U.S.C. 655, 656). Authority to establish this Committee is found in 
Sections 6(b)(1) and 7(b) of the OSH Act, Section 41 of the Longshore 
and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (33 U.S.C. 941), Secretary of Labor's 
Order 4--2010 (75 FR 55355, Sept. 10, 2010), and 29 CFR part 1912. The 
Committee is diverse and balanced, both in terms of segments of the maritime 
industry represented (e.g., shipyard employment, longshoring, and marine 
terminal industries), and in the views or interests represented by the members.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joseph V. Daddura, Director, Office of 
Maritime within the Directorate of Standards and Guidance, U.S. 
Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 
Room N-3609, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; 
telephone: (202) 693-2086.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Committee will advise OSHA on matters 
relevant to the safety and health of employees in the maritime 
industry. This includes advice on maritime issues that will result in 
more effective enforcement, training, and outreach programs, and 
streamlined regulatory efforts. The maritime industry includes shipyard 
employment, longshoring, and marine terminal industries. The Committee 
will function solely as an advisory body and in compliance with the 
provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and OSHA's regulations 
covering advisory committees (29 CFR part 1912).

    Authority: This notice was prepared under the direction of David 
Michaels, PhD, MPH, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational 
Safety and Health, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution 
Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210, pursuant to Sections 6(b)(1), and 
7(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 
655(b)(1), 656(b)), the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5. U.S.C. 
App. 2), Section 41 of the Longshore and Harbor Workers' 
Compensation Act (33 U.S.C. 941), Secretary of Labor's Order 4--2010 
(75 FR 55355, Sept. 10, 2010), and 29 CFR part 1912.

    Signed at Washington, DC, on January 4, 2011.
