Overview

This booklet contains all the safety and health standards concerning the marine terminal and longshoring industries, as contained in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 1917 and 1918, as of June 30, 2000. Also, included are brief discussions about: 1. The importance of training in establishing and reinforcing employee awareness of job safety and health; 2. The elements of a safety and health program that can be used by employers to develop effective programs at their work sites; 3. OSHA's onsite consultation program that is available to employers. Hazards not covered by Marine Terminal and Longshoring Industry standards may be covered by general industry standards contained in 29 CFR Part 1910. Where a particular marine terminal or longshoring hazard also is covered by general industry standards, only the marine terminal or longshoring standard is cited by OSHA inspectors. In addition, OSHA regulations regarding general agency practices and procedures are applicable to marine terminal and longshoring industry employment, directing particular attention to the provisions of 29 CFR Part 1904, "Recording and Reporting of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses." The marine terminal and longshoring standards cover employees of employers that perform marine cargo handling operations on shore or aboard vessels. States administering their own occupational safety and health programs through plans approved under Section 18(b) of the Act must adopt standards and enforce requirements that are at least as effective as Federal requirements.
