In a notice published in the Nov. 23 Federal Register, the agency announced it was seeking membership nominations for:

  • One representative from a state safety and health agency

Members serve two-year terms, and nominations are due by Jan. 23. In related news, ACCSH will meet Dec. 15-16 in Washington to receive updates from OSHA officials on the agency’s enforcement and outreach efforts, and will discuss proposed standards, among other topics.

On Dec. 13-14, several of the committee’s workgroups will meet, including Construction Health Hazards; Reinforced Concrete in Construction; and Multilingual Issues, Diversity, and Women in Construction. All meetings are open to the public.

Composed of 15 members, ACCSH advises the secretary of labor on policy matters and formulating construction safety and health standards.
