According to a news release, OSHA will host the meeting, which will take place in person, on May 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., ET. New members will be introduced at the meeting, and attendees will hear “updates from OSHA’s Office of the Assistant Secretary, Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs and Office of Maritime and Agriculture, and the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs,” the agency said.
