Maritime Industry Boosts Investment in Safety and Health Training to Counter Rise in Job-related Injuries
Employers in the Maritime Industry are increasing their focus on the safety and health of their workers in 2019. Investing in safety training has gained in importance due to an alarming rise in the number of job-related injuries that have occurred in the last eight months. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that employees are under-reporting injuries, which often leads to unplanned leaves of absence, impacting the entire work team. 

Maritime Industry employers are now trying to stop this vicious cycle of injuries and absenteeism by creating a strong foundation for the overall health and safety of each employee. There is an increasing recognition of gaps in providing OSHA standards training to workers and a renewed commitment to filling those gaps. One solution is to offer 10-hour and 30-hour OSHA training to help workers identify specific hazards more commonly seen on vessels or shipyards. 

OSHA 5400-Trainer Course for the Maritime Industry authorizes participants to become trainers in the Maritime Outreach Training Program and to conduct both 10- and 30-Hour Maritime Safety and Health courses for shipyard employment, marine terminals and longshoring. Course participants learn effective instructional approaches and the successful use of visual aids and handouts. If you are interested in providing 10- and 30-Hour Maritime Safety and Health courses to workers in the Maritime Industry, click here for more information on the OSHA Outreach Training Program.

The OSHA Training Institute Education Center is offering OSHA 5400-Trainer Course for the Maritime Industry in Dublin, California, on November 18- 21, 2019. Click here for more information and to register.

OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements Help Improve Worker Protections
Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. ( Certain low-risk industries are exempted .) Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded. Learn More

This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards –preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses.

The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.


The Injury Tracking Application (ITA) is accessible from the  ITA launch page , where you can provide the Agency your OSHA Form 300A information. The date by which certain employers are required to submit to OSHA the information from their completed Form 300A is March 2nd of the year after the calendar year covered by the form.

Employers must report any worker fatality within 8 hours and any amputation, loss of an eye, or hospitalization of a worker within 24 hours. Learn details and how to report online or by phone .

The OSHA Training Institute Education Center is offering OSHA 7845-Recordkeeping Rule Seminar in multiple locations through the end of 2019. This half-day course is designed to assist employers in identifying and fulfilling their responsibilities for maintaining and posting records of illnesses and injuries and reporting specific cases to OSHA.

OSHA Announces New Interactive Website to Highlight Important Information on its Whistleblower Protection Program
OSHA recently announced the launch of a redesigned website for its Whistleblower Protection Program. The interactive, streamlined design highlights important information on more than 20 statutes OSHA enforces.

The redesign includes a new homepage with a video that showcases industries the program covers, and menu options that allow employers and employees to easily find information about their rights and responsibilities. Users can access information on protected activities, filing deadlines and resources based on subject/industry or statute.

Under OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Program, employees may file whistleblower complaints with the OSHA if they believe they have been retaliated against for engaging in protected activities related to workplace safety and health, airline, commercial motor carrier, consumer product, environmental, financial reform, food safety, motor vehicle safety, healthcare reform, nuclear, pipeline, public transportation agency, railroad, maritime and securities laws.
