OSHA Seeks Experts to Fill Seven ACCSH Vacancies

OSHA is accepting nominations for individuals to serve on the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH). The group advises the Secretary of Labor on developing safety and health standards and policies that affect the safety and health of construction workers and the construction industry.

Established as a continuing advisory committee under the Construction Safety Act of 1969, ACCSH and the Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA have consulted for nearly 40 years on construction safety issues such as women in construction, recordkeeping, crane safety, and safety and health resources for Latino construction workers.

OSHA is seeking nominees with experience and expertise in construction-related safety and health issues to fill two employee, two employer, one state safety and health agency, and two public representative vacancies. All 15 members serve two year terms, except the representative designated by the Department of Health and Human Services and appointed by the Secretary of Labor, who serves indefinitely. ACCSH meets two to four times a year.

Nominations may be submitted at www.regulations.gov, the federal eRulemaking portal. If submitting nominations by mail, send to the OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. OSHA-2010-0005, U.S. Department of Labor, N-2625, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.20210. Nominations not exceeding 10 pages may be faxed to 202-693-1648. The deadline for submissions is June 14, 2010.

General inquiries should be directed to Michael Buchet, OSHA Office of Construction Services, at 202-693-2020. Press inquiries should be directed to Jennifer Ashley, OSHA Office of Communications, at 202-693-1999.
