Marine Section
Welcome to the Marine Section of the Business and Industry Division
The Marine Section was established during the National Safety Council's Annual Congress in New York City on September 14, 1917 and has been striving for safer waterways since.
Formed following the tragic sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and a few short months after the United States entered into World War I, the Marine Section has continued to provide a forum to address issues that impact safety in the marine industry.

As a part of the National Safety Council and the Business & Industry Division, the mission of the Marine Section is to prevent injuries and maritime related incidents through improvements in safety, health and environmental compliance.
