Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health
(MACOSH)

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

ACTION: Notice of reestablishment of the MACOSH charter.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory
Committee Act (FACA), as amended (5 U.S.C., App. 2), and after
consultation with the General Services Administration, the Secretary of
Labor is reestablishing the charter for the Maritime Advisory Committee
for Occupational Safety and Health. The Committee will better enable
OSHA to perform its duties under the Occupational Safety and Health Act
(the OSH Act) of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 655, 656). Authority to establish this
Committee is at 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 1-2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), 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 and
 interests represented by the members.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Wangdahl, Director, Office of
Maritime and Agriculture, 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, marine terminal and other related industries,
e.g., commercial fishing and shipbreaking. The Committee will function
solely as an advisory body in compliance with the provisions of FACA
and OSHA's regulations covering advisory committees (29 CFR Part 1912).
