Raising Workers' 'Voice' on NACOSH Agenda

The committee's Sept. 14-15 meeting in Washington, D.C., also features an update on Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup monitoring by OSHA and NIOSH.

Both OSHA chief Dr. David Michaels and NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard are scheduled to speak to OSHA's National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health when the committee's members meet Sept. 14-15 in Washington, D.C. The tentative agenda published by OSHA also includes an update on oil spill cleanup activities, an ethics update, and an item listed as "Enhancing workers' voice in the workplace."

NACOSH has a Gulf Oil Spill Subgroup that also will meet Sept. 14 at DOL headquarters and will report to the full committee the next day. The Gulf Oil Spill Subgroup was formed at NACOSH's June 8 meeting.

Comments, requests to speak, and requests for special accommodation must be submitted by Sept. 7 via www.regulations.gov (Docket No. OSHA-2010-0012), mail, or fax to the OSHA Docket Office at 202-693-1648.
