Revised OSHA
reporting requirements
The U.S. Department of Labor's
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) has adopted
revised policies for enforcing
OSHA's requirements with respect
to coronavirus. OSHA is increasing
in-person inspections at all types of
workplaces and is revising its previous
enforcement policy for recording
cases of coronavirus. Under the new
policy, OSHA will enforce the recordkeeping requirements of 29 CFR 1904
for employee coronavirus illnesses
for all employers. OSHA's guidance
emphasizes that employers must make
reasonable efforts to ascertain whether
a particular case of coronavirus is
work-related. Employers with 10 or
fewer employees and certain employers
in low hazard industries have no
recording obligations; they only need
to report work-related coronavirus
illnesses that result in a fatality or an
employee's in-patient hospitalization,
amputation or loss of an eye. For
further information, visit www.osha.gov.
NMMA 2019 Statistical
Abstract sections available
The National Marine Manufacturers
Association (NMMA) is continuing
to release final 2019 data from the
annual Statistical Abstract. Data from
the sales trends reports shows more
than 200,000 new outboard, inboard,
jet-propelled and sterndrive boats were
sold in 2019, the second highest in
twelve years, with growth in outboard
cruisers (up 18%), inboard wake sport
boats (up 6%) and personal watercraft
(up 5%). The full 2019 report will be
available in August including trends
in global trade on recreational boats
with breakouts by country and product
categories. For more information,

Free guide helps marine
businesses operate safely
The Marine Retailers Association
of the Americas, along with trade
association partners from across the
marine industry, released a free 58page publication aimed at helping
marine businesses operate safely during
the COVID-19 health crisis. The
publication, titled "Guide to Operating
Your Boat Business Safely," provides
a manual for running an organization
that is safe for employees, customers
and communities. Each section
highlights guidance from government
agencies as well as best practices
from inside and outside of the marine
industry. Download the guide at
www.mraa.com/page/GetBackToWork.
COVID-19 effects on
marine industry forecasted
Results from the Forecast on U.S.
Boat Building Production from ITR
Economics show how the recreational
boating industry has been impacted
by the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Among the forecast results:
* U.S. boat building production is
expected to decline through the
remainder of 2020 and into the
first half of 2021 before rising in
the latter half of next year and
continuing through at least 2022.
* COVID-19 concerns could
prompt consumers to favor boating
vacations versus overseas trips,
an upside to the forecast, which
could prompt an earlier boost in
production beginning in 2021.
* By 2022, the rebound in production
is expected to be at levels similar
to those in spring 2017.

A free guide from the
MRAA provides information
to marine businesses about
how to operate safely during
the pandemic. Download the
