OSHA is now looking for member nominations for the Maritime Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (MACOSH)
According to a news release, MACOSH is for those interested in keeping workers safe in the “shipyard, longshoring and commercial fishing industries.” Fifteen members will be selected to serve two-year terms. Meetings are held twice per year.
Started in 1995, MACOSH plays a role in the maritime industry by advising the Secretary of Labor on standards and other matters, OSHA said. Members are appointed by the Assistant Secretary and include “four to represent management, four to represent labor, three to represent occupational safety and health professions; and four to represent government.”
Nominations can be submitted until January 13, 2023, on the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
