What maritime law provides compensation for injuries?

The federal Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) is a form of workers' compensation for employees who are disabled from injuries suffered on the nations' navigable waters or in adjacent areas in Hawaii and elsewhere that are used for loading, unloading, maintenance or construction of maritime vessels. It also provides dependent benefits for work-related fatalities and benefits for occupational diseases.

Hawaii ranked average in workplace safety

The National Safety Council found that 13 workers are killed in this country each day in a fatal workplace accident. In its recent report on fatal accidents, the Council determined that Hawaii received a grade of a C and ranked 22nd among the states for overall workplace safety. No state received a grade of A.
