Prior to his assignment with Maersk, he headed the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) Office of Maritime Standards at the agency’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. Mr. Signorino’s professional career with OSHA spanned a sixteen year period; the first three of those years assigned as a senior compliance officer at the Port of New York & New Jersey.

Prior to his civil service career, he held managerial positions with several ocean carriers, stevedores and marine terminal operators.
Mr. Signorino began work in the marine cargo handling industry in 1969, as a rank and file member of the International Longshoremen’s Association, AFL-CIO, in Brooklyn, New York. He retains honorary membership within that labor organization.Orientation of RCT
