Rule 4101:9-2-18 | Maritime and longshoreman occupations.


All maritime and longshoreman occupations are prohibited for minors under eighteen years of age.


(A) "Maritime occupations" mean any employment on a ship, tug, barge, or other vessel; in the operation and repair of such vessels; and in the loading and unloading of such vessels. Maritime service is not necessarily a "maritime occupation" simply because it is rendered upon the high seas, a river, or other navigable water. To be a "maritime occupation," there must be a relation to commerce or navigation and a connection with a ship, tug, barge, or other vessel employed in trade.

(B) "Longshoreman occupations" are those jobs where one works in the loading and unloading of ships, tugs, barges, or other vessels.
