The Naval Historical Center provides administrative support to the USS Constitution, including the ship's maintenance and repair facility at the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston. NHC-DB employs specially trained and skilled artisans, including ship restorers and riggers, who ensure that "Old Ironsides" is safe to sail and continues to be a symbol of U.S. Navy history and heritage.
Under the alliance, the two partners will develop and deliver training programs for NHC-DB employees who repair and restore the USS Constitution. Training will focus on the recognition and prevention of fall, electrical, caught-between and struck-by hazards. OSHA and NHC-DB also will share and promote best practices and effective approaches to workplace safety.
