advisory ADCI Advisory notice Archives USCG - ANPRM - Training of Personnel and Manning on Mobile Offshore Units and Offshore Supply Vessels Engaged in U.S. Outer Continental ShelfActivities SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is considering expanding its maritime safety training requirements to cover all persons other than crew working on offshore supply vessels (OSVs) and mobile offshore units (MOUs) engaged in activities on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), regardless of flag. This is necessary to enhance personnel preparedness for responding to emergencies such as fire, personal injury, and abandon ship situations in hazardous environments. We seek comments on the following topics: the sufficiency of existing maritime safety training and the value of additional maritime safety training for maritime crew and persons other than crew on OSVs and MOUs; an MOU's safety organizational structure (defining levels of authority and lines of communication); the professional education and service requirements for industrial officers on MOUs; the sufficiency of manning regulations on MOUs and OSVs; and any available economic data on current labor market trends and conditions as well as the current costs, benefits, and effectiveness of mandated maritime safety training courses and programs for maritime crew and persons other than crew. DATES: Comments and related material must either be submitted to our online docket via http://www.regulations.gov on or before July 14, 2014 or reach the Docket Management Facility by that date. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this advance notice of proposed rulemaking, call or email Mr. Gerald Miante, Maritime Personnel Qualifications Division (CG- OES-1), U.S. Coast Guard, 2703 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE., Washington, 54 UnderWater july/august 2014 DC 20593; telephone 202-372-1407, or email gerald.p.miante@uscg.mil.

Compliance officers get hands-on training to learn how cranes are erected, dismantled and operated Compliance officers from OSHA Area Offices in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin recently went through three days of hands-on training to enhance their knowledge of crane operation in construction. The training was provided by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 at the union's apprenticeship and skill improvement training site in Wilmington, Ill. Compliance officers participated in both classroom courses and field exercises to identify various types of equipment and increase their understanding of how cranes are erected, dismantled and operated. The OSHA staff also had the valuable experience of getting to operate tower and mobile cranes under the direction of the training site instructors. OSHA to convene small business review panel on infectious diseases On Wednesday June 4, OSHA announced that it will convene a Small Business Advocacy Review panel to choose representatives of small entities who will provide their perspectives on a possible Infectious Diseases standard.
