Millan and Veters Publish Key OSHA Article
August 20, 2003

Litigation special counsel Stan Millan and admiralty & maritime partner Pat Veters co-authored an article on the Occupational Safety and Health Act for the Spring 2003 issue of the Loyola Maritime Law Journal, published in Volume 2, No. 1, pages 44-91, dealing with dual agency regulatory jurisdiction—OSHA and USCG—over certain maritime vessels. The article states on page 44 that “two agency heads are not always better than one,” and warns of the implications of a recent high court decision rendered by the Supreme Court in Chao v. Mallard Bay Drilling, which held that OSHA, not just USCG regulations, applies to uninspected vessels. The article suggests new defenses, compliance strategies, and safety tips for the maritime industry. The article also includes maritime safety check lists. Both Mr. Millan and Mr. Veters practice OSHA in their respective fields.
