  Occupational Safety and Health Administration Maritime Advisory
  Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (MACOSH)

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

  ACTION: Notice of renewal of the MACOSH charter.

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


  SUMMARY: In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory
  Committee Act (FACA), and after consultation with the General Services
  Administration, the Secretary of Labor is renewing 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. 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) 693-2066.

  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).
