Itasca, IL — Amy Harper, director of workplace strategy and consulting operations at the National Safety Council, is among 12 new appointees to OSHA’s National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, the agency announced Sept. 23.

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

“It is an honor to serve on a committee that directs the national dialog on worker safety and health,” Harper, who will represent management during her one-year term, said in a Sept. 23 NSC press release. “Having been a leader in workplace safety for more than 100 years, the council looks forward to this opportunity to better protect workers today and make recommendations on the emerging workplace safety issues of tomorrow.”

NACOSH has not convened since Nov. 15, 2016. Its charter was renewed Oct. 11, 2018. According to OSHA, the committee will host at least two public meetings a year.
