PARTNERSHIP APPROACH TO WATERWAYS MANAGEMENT: HARBOR SAFETY COMMITTEES

This article defines and describes Harbor Safety Committees (HSCs). HSCs are loosely defined as local coordinating bodies whose responsibilities include recommending actions to improve the safety of a port or waterway. They are generally comprised of representatives from maritime labor and industry organizations, environmental groups, governmental agencies, and other public interest groups. The ways in which HSCs fit into waterways management within national, regional, and local maritime systems are also discussed. With increased support, HSCs can be powerful positive forces in enhancing the safety in our nation's ports.
