Yes – Maritime Employers are Required to Provide Compensation Benefits to Employees

The United States marine industry is a lifeline for America’s economy. It supports
everything from shipbuilding and repair to foreign trade and domestic shipping.
Most importantly, the industry provides over 15 million jobs.

The number of workers needed to support the U.S. maritime infrastructure is
impressive, but working on shipping vessels, oilrigs and docks can be hazardous.

Common hazards include:
  • Falls from platforms
  • Fire
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Vehicular accidents
  • Electrical shocks
According to the U.S. Federal Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act
(USL&H), maritime employers are required to provide compensation benefits to
employees who work on or near U.S. waters.

Protecting maritime employees is as important as the work they are required
to perform. And, while companies do everything they can to maintain safe work
environments, accidents do happen.
A single injury can sideline an employee
for months and cause severe financial hardship. As an employer, you may be
responsible for the individual (or individuals) injured on the job.
