DOL renews maritime advisory committee charter
Washington – The Department of Labor has renewed the charter of the Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, which advises the secretary of labor on safety in the maritime industry.
MACOSH, established by DOL in 1995, is made up of 15 members who represent workers, employers, and government safety and health agencies. The committee offers recommendations to the secretary of labor about working conditions in the industry, as well as worker safety initiatives.
All advisory committees are required to renew their charters every two years, according to the Federal Advisory Committee Act.
