DOL Renews NACOSH Charter

The Department of Labor has renewed the charter of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH), as announced in the Oct. 10 Federal Register. The committee, which advises the Secretaries of Labor and Health and Human Services on occupational safety and health programs, is administered by OSHA.

"NACOSH plays an important role in helping OSHA develop and promote standards and guidelines to protect employees from injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on the job," said Assistant Secretary for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "Its members bring vast knowledge and unique insights that assist OSHA's mission of ensuring safe and healthful workplaces."

Members of the 12-person advisory committee, established by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, are chosen for their knowledge and experience in occupational safety and health. NACOSH includes two members each representing management, labor, the occupational health professions, and the occupational safety professions, and four members representing the public. In accordance with federal regulations on advisory committees, the NACOSH charter must be renewed every two years. The current charter expires Jan. 29, 2009, and the new charter will expire two years after the date it is filed.
