Subcontractors must sign in and out at the front gate on a daily basis, indicating the name of the vessel or the project on which they are working. Subcontractors are required to comply with all applicable shipyard safety rules, environmental laws and OSHA laws and regulations and are expected to clean the area in which they are working and dispose of all their own work waste.

Frequently Asked Questions
The United States Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA) is intended to provide a workers' compensation system for maritime employees (other than seamen) who work on the navigable waters of the United States. Given that Derecktor is 100% engaged in the repair of recreational vessels neither yard requires that contractors carry USL&H insurance. However, if a small contractor exercises the exclusion from the State Workers Compensation requirement, they are required under the law to carry USL&H coverage. In short, if you don't have State Workers Compensation you must have USL&H.
