A meeting of the Maritime Advisory Committee (MACOSH) has been scheduled for later this month.
According to a news release, OSHA will host the meeting, which will take place in person, on May 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., ET. New members will be introduced at the meeting, and attendees will hear “updates from OSHA’s Office of the Assistant Secretary, Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs and Office of Maritime and Agriculture, and the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs,” the agency said.
In addition, reports from MACOSH Longshoring Workgroup and the MACOSH Shipyard Workgroup—which will be meeting the day before from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.—will be shared.
Members of the public are welcome to attend both the MACOSH and MACOSH Shipyard and Longshoring Workgroups meetings in person or online.
Although those attending the May 23 MACOSH Shipyard and Longshoring Workgroups meeting will only be able to listen, MACOSH meeting attendees will have the opportunity to speak and can request to do so on the Federal eRulemaking Portal, Docket Number OSHA-2022-0011. Requests, along with comments, are due by May 16.
