Washington — The Department of Labor is looking to fill six seats on OSHA’s National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

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.


According to a notice published in the Feb. 26 Federal Register, half of the committee members’ two-year terms are set to expire July 31. Nominations for each represented group are being accepted, with two public representative seats needed to be filled.

The nomination deadline is April 27.
