Washington — OSHA is accepting nominations for its National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, the agency announced in a notice published in the Oct. 23 Federal Register.

The 12-member committee advises, consults with and makes recommendations to the secretaries of labor and health and human services on matters relating to occupational safety and health. All members are appointed by the secretary of labor.

Because the terms for half of the committee members have expired and the others expire at the end of this year, OSHA is seeking nominations for all the positions:

  • Four public representatives.
  • Two management representatives.
  • Two labor representatives.
  • Two occupational safety professional representatives.
  • Two occupational health professional representatives.

Committee members serve staggered terms. Accordingly, half of the appointees will be given two-year terms and the other half will serve three-year terms.

Nominations are due Dec. 24.

NACOSH, which has not convened since Nov. 15, 2016, had its charter renewed on Oct. 11.
