OSHA Releases New Guidance on Traffic Safety in Marine Terminals

Monday, July 23, 2007
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a new guidance document, Traffic Safety in Marine Terminals , to help the maritime industry avoid traffic accidents and prevent or reduce work-related fatalities and injuries. The guidance document was recommended by the Maritime Advisory

Committee for Occupational Safety and Health in March, 2004. It is not a standard or regulation and it carries no new legal obligations. Rather, it focuses on the factors that contribute to traffic related injuries and identifies measures to prevent them, such as safety checks, vehicle selection and maintenance, traffic controls, safe operation of vehicles, and safe driving techniques.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 15 fatalities in the marine cargo industry in 2005, eight of which were the result of transportation incidents.
