Solis Renews ACCSH Charter

The 15-member panel has been in existence since 1969. Its work groups are currently focused on green jobs, power fastening tools, residential fall protection, and more.

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is re-establishing the charter of OSHA's Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health for two years. The panel has been around since 1969, offering advice on construction issues and potential regulations.

"Since OSHA's inception, ACCSH has played an important role in furthering the safety and health of workers in the construction industry," said Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels. “The members’ advice and recommendations are extremely valuable to the agency because they have a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience on a wide range of construction trades, activities, and issues."

ACCSH has 15 members who are appointed by the secretary and serve two-year terms. Five represent employers in the construction industry, five represent employees in the construction industry and usually are from building trades unions, two are public representatives, two represent state safety and health agencies, and one is from NIOSH. Currently active work groups are focused on women/diversity in construction, education and training, green jobs, multilingual issues in construction, power fastening tools such as nail guns, prevention by design, residential fall protection, and silica and other construction health hazards.
