Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health; Notice of Open Meeting by Teleconference
Notice is hereby given that the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH), established under section 107(e)(1) of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (40 U.S.C. 333) and section 7(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 656), will hold an open full committee meeting by teleconference on December 18, 1996, at the Frances Perkins Building, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Room N3437A and B, Washington, DC. The teleconference meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at approximately 3:00 p.m.
The purpose of ACCSH is to provide continuing advice and recommendations to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on matters relating to safety and health in construction employment. OSHA is seeking advice and recommendations of ACCSH on how to evaluate the practical application of OSHA's construction safety and health standards to the residential construction industry. Accordingly, the teleconference meeting will explore ways ACCSH can assist OSHA, such as through the utilization of an ACCSH workgroup or outside consultants. Due to scheduling difficulties, OSHA is unable to wait until the regularly scheduled meeting of ACCSH in march 1997 to request assistance. For the same reason, OSHA is unable to provide the usual 15-day advance notice of this teleconference meeting. However, a discussion of the teleconference meeting will take place at the March 1997 ACCSH meeting.
Anyone who wishes to make an oral presentation should notify the Division of Consumer Affairs before the meting. The request, which can be in writing or by phone, should state the amount of time desired, the capacity in which the person will appear and a brief outline of the content of the presentation. Persons who request the opportunity to address the Advisory Committee may be allowed to speak, as time permits, at the discretion of the chairman of the Advisory Committee. Individuals with disabilities who wish to attend the meeting should contact Tom Hall, at the phone number listed below, if special accommodations are needed.
For additional information contact: Tom Hall, Division of Consumer Affairs, Room N3647, Telephone 202-219-8615, at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20210. An official record of the teleconference meeting will be available for public inspection at the OSHA Docket Office, Room N2625, Telephone 202-219-7894.
Signed at Washington, DC, this 5th day of December 1996.
Joseph A. Dear,
Assistant Secretary of Labor.
