Washington — Labor Secretary Marty Walsh has renewed the two-year charter for the OSHA Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health.

According to a notice published in the Nov. 2 Federal Register, the charter was revised to include a provision describing “demographic categories targeted for participation on ACCSH” that was removed during the previous renewal in 2020.

The committee advises the Department of Labor and OSHA on upcoming standards affecting the construction industry and “the administration of safety and health provisions” in the Construction Safety Act of 1969.
