Abstract: In the 1980s, OSHA embarked on a project to update and consolidate OSHA standards that applied to the shipbuilding, shiprepair, and shipbreaking industry. Shipyard employers are subject to both the shipyard and general industry standards, and this project aimed at establishing a vertical standard for shipyard employment. A proposal on access and egress was issued in November 1988 (53 FR 48092). OSHA plans to withdraw this proposal.
