Washington — OSHA is looking to fill six seats on its National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

The 12-member committee – established under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 – advises, consults with and makes recommendations to the secretaries of labor and health and human services on matters relating to workplace safety and health. Members serve staggered two-year teams and 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 March 10 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 needing to be filled.

Nominations are due May 10.
