1-2012 (77 FR 3912, Jan. 25, 2012), and 29 CFR Part 1912. The Committee 
is diverse and balanced, both in terms of segments of the maritime 
industry represented (e.g., shipyard employment, longshoring, and 
marine terminal industries), and in the views and interests represented 
by the members.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Wangdahl, Director, Office of 
Maritime and Agriculture, Directorate of Standards and Guidance, U.S. 
Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 
Room N-3609, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210; 
telephone: (202) 693-2086.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Committee will advise OSHA on matters 
relevant to the safety and health of employees in the maritime 
industry. This includes advice on maritime issues that will result in 
more effective enforcement, training, and outreach programs, and 
streamlined regulatory efforts. The maritime industry includes shipyard 
employment, longshoring, marine terminal and other related industries, 
e.g., commercial fishing and shipbreaking. The Committee will function 
solely as an advisory body in compliance with the provisions of FACA 
and OSHA's regulations covering advisory committees (29 CFR Part 1912).
