ruling brings to an end the deplorable and thankfully futile attempt of Global
Marine to bankrupt Harland and Wolff by withholding the delivery installment due. This decision has galvanised our determination to succeed in the expect- ed Arbitration to recover the balance of monies due by Global Marine for work completed. The claim was for $186.9 million, of which $91.3 million has been paid on account."
National Safety Council To
The Marine Section of the National
Safety Council Business and Industry
Division has scheduled technical ses- sions, meetings and an Open Workshop
Seminar on Shipyard Safety Issues.
This meeting of the Shipyard Group is in conjunction with the National Safety
Congress in Orlando, which is sched- uled to occur from October 15-20.
The advantage of the Marine Section
Meetings at the National Safety Con- gress is the access to the many safety professionals, compliance officers, safe- ty equipment suppliers, and all industry technical sessions involved with the
National Safety Congress and Exposi- tion.
The Congress is holding 154 safety and health technical sessions in con- junction with a significant exposition floor with a hands on view of every con- ceivable safety and health device or pro- gram. The technical sessions are chosen for the specific applicability to the improvement of any company's safety and health program and professional development for the 20,000 safety pro- fessionals expected to attend.
The Marine Section is sponsoring six technical sessions and is holding two forum type workshops one for the
Ocean Transport Group and one for the
Shipyard Group. Potential topics sched- uled for discussion at the conference include: Statistics, Ergonomics, OSHA
Shipyard assistance programs, Compe- tent Person Improvement, fall protec- tion, hazardous energy control, ship repair contractor audits and training.

Safety Congress, to access the agenda for the Shipyard Workshop and for a list of sessions that are maritime industry specific, log onto: www.nsc.org.
