||Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (MACOSH) Meeting
||Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis appointed 15 new members to the Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, which will hold an open meeting to advise OSHA on protecting the safety and health of maritime workers. Experts in maritime safety and health, the committee members will serve two-year terms and represent the interests of management, labor, the occupational safety and health professions and government. MACOSH was established in 1995 to advise the Secretary of Labor on various issues related to safe and healthful working conditions in maritime industries. The maritime industry has been selected for special attention due to high injury and illness rates and the specialized nature of some occupations. MACOSH also provides a voice for stakeholders to express their concerns and suggestions for shipyard worker safety directly to OSHA's leadership.
