Rule Details

Rule Number: 11P016
Title: VOSHA Rule: Part 1915 Standards for Shipyard Employment
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Department of Labor
Legal Authority: 21 V.S.A. ยงยง 204 and 224
Summary: This rule adopts the maritime standard for shipyard employment. The rule protects on shore workers in the maintenance, repair and building of boats. Federal OSHA retains jurisdiction over off shore work on the navigable waters of the state. Marinas are only covered by this rule if they perform major overhauls. Incidental maintenance and repairs do not fall under these maritime rules and are covered by the General Industry standards. There are only a few companies in the state that would be covered by this rule. Previously these companies were covered by the VOSHA general industry standards, many of which are made a part of this rule. The general industry standards have provided comprehensive protection to these industries.
Persons Affected: Public and Private Sector employees and employees that engage in ship building, maintenance and repair.
Economic Impact: There is no economic impact. The companies that are affected by this rule are already covered by the VOSHA general industry standards.
