Three New Members for June NACOSH Meeting

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis announced the newcomers' appointments and the reappointments of five members ahead of the June 19-20 meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

The National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health is slated to meet June 19-20 in Washington, D.C., with five members now reappointed and a trio of new appointees on board. U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis announced those moves.

Newly appointed members who serve as representatives of the public are Anne Soiza, assistant director for the Washington Division of Occupational Safety and Health in Olympia, Wash., and Mark Carleson, safety manager for Orange County, Calif. Jacqueline Agnew, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore, is the committee's new health representative.

Reappointment members are: safety representative Peter Dooley of LaborSafe in Dexter, Mich.; management representative Joseph Van Houten, senior director of worldwide environmental health and safety for Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, N.J.; and labor representatives Bill Borwegen, director of occupational health and safety for the Service Employees International Union, and Margaret Seminario, director of safety and health for the AFL-CIO. Linda Rae Murray, chief medical officer of the Cook County Department of Health in Chicago and immediate past president of the American Public Health Association, has been reappointed as a public member and as the committee's new chair.

Four other members round out the committee. NACOSH was created by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 to advise the secretaries of labor and health and human services. It holds public meetings at least twice per year, and members are appointed for two-year terms.

The June meeting's tentative agenda includes remarks from OSHA Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels and NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard. There will be discussions about GHS and emerging issues, a presentation on the current OSHA/NIOSH fall prevention campaign, and NACOSH work group reports. A final agenda will be available at http://www.osha.gov/dop/nacosh/nacosh.html.
