        The Maritime Alliances should be renewed. Most likely it will be reinstated but there will be
        some delay..
        Some recent government initiatives to watch:
        New directive on checking OSHA 300 records for targeted companies
        The Protecting America's Workers Act (HR 2067)
        Worker Protection Against Combustible Dust Explosions and Fires Act (CDEFA) (H.R. 849),

         Executive/management briefing pamphlets and program
         Will appoint some one to work on Fall protection product
                  Has ten briefing programs for executive managements
                  Has completed a majority of OSHA Maritime Courses including Marine Cargo and
                  Terminal courses.

Asked if a combined 30 hour course could be done.
         Could they be taught simultaneously?
5400 should be oriented toward shipyards or stevedores/terminals. The stevedore/terminal course while
covering the same material should start out with those subjects applicable to 1918 and 1917. This can be
done with pictures, case studies and specific examples from the stevedore/terminal world.
