Itasca, IL — Amy Harper, senior director of workplace training and consulting services at the National Safety Council, has been reappointed to serve on OSHA’s National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

Harper was first appointed to NACOSH in September 2019. Her term expired in July.

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 labor secretary to represent labor, management, safety and health professionals, and the public.

“I am honored to continue serving on a committee that directs the national dialogue on worker safety and health,” Harper, who will represent management, said in an NSC press release. “The increased spotlight on workplace safety in recent months makes this appointment an even greater opportunity to make a difference. The council appreciates the chance to make recommendations that will help workers live their fullest lives.”

Mark Baker, vice president of workplace at NSC, added: “Through our representation on NACOSH, the council is able to make an even greater impact in protecting worker lives. Having a voice at the table when it comes to workplace research priorities, regulatory matters, emerging issues and more allows the council to better guide our members and customers to increased levels of safety maturity.”
