US Department of Labor seeks nominations for membership to Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking nominations for membership on the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health.

The Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act, also known as the Construction Safety Act, established the committee to advise the Secretary of Labor and Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health on policy matters arising under the CSA, and the formulation of construction standards.

The Secretary will select 14 members to create a broad-based, balanced and diverse committee representing the interests of employers, employees, state safety and health agencies, and the public. No new appointment will be made for the one representative designated by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Submit nominations and supporting materials, identified by Docket No. OSHA-2022-0001, electronically to the Federal eRulemaking Portal. The deadline for submitting nominations is Jan. 13, 2023. Read the Federal Register notice for additional information.

Members generally serve a two-year term and can be appointed to successive terms. The advisory committee meets two to four times per year.
