The maritime industry includes the construction, repair and scrapping of vessels, as well as the movement of cargo and other materials. Maritime industry workers face many potential hazards, including slips, trips and falls; machinery and equipment hazards; hazardous chemicals; confined/enclosed spaces; and fire hazards. The implementation of controls, procedures and training are needed to raise awareness of potential hazards and ways to keep workers safe.
OSHA has information, resources, and solutions to help workers and employers identify, reduce and eliminate maritime-related hazards. Learn More
