This booklet contains all the safety and health standards specific to the Shipyard Industry contained in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1915, as of July 1, 2014.
This booklet contains guidelines for establishing an effective program for managing workplace safety and health in the shipyard industry. The Maritime Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (MACOSH) for both shipyards (SIC 3731 and NAICS 336611) and boatyards (SIC 3732 and NAICS 336612) developed the guidelines for OSHA. According to MACOSH, all workplaces in the shipyard industry should have a safety and health program regardless of the size of the workplace or the number of hazards.
These guidelines pertain to employees of employers performing shipyard activities on the shore, pier, terminal, yard, shipyard, machine shop, riverbank, etc., as well as on the vessels afloat or in dry-docks or graving docks are covered by the Shipyard standards.

This guide also provides guidelines on the method to handle accident and incident investigations that may relate to workplace fatalities, injuries, illnesses, or potentially hazardous incidents. Training for employees exposed to workplace hazards, handling of flammable and toxic cleaning solvents and more are covered within this booklet.
