Two-day NACOSH meeting set for mid-September

September 2, 2010

The Gulf oil spill and methods for enhancing workers' voices in the workplace are among the topics scheduled for discussion at a National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health meeting set to take place Sept. 14 and 15 in Washington. OSHA administrator David Michaels and NIOSH Director John Howard are tentatively scheduled to attend the meeting.

In addition to the full committee meeting, the Gulf Oil Spill subgroup -- formed this past June -- is scheduled to meet Sept. 14 and report back to the full committee the following day.
