Interested individuals and groups may make public comments at these forums. Because time is limited, it may not be possible to schedule all those who make a request to speak. In addition, because of the time constraints, individuals who are selected to speak will be allotted no more than 10 minutes to make a presentation. Following each presentation, a panel may question the presenter on relevant issues.
More information on submission requirements for notices of intention to speak at any of the forums, as well as submission of statements and other written comments, can be found in the Federal Register Notice or at OSHA's homepage at www.osha.gov.
