SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Assistant Secretary of Labor for 
Occupational Safety and Health invites interested parties to submit 
nominations for membership on NACOSH. The Committee is authorized by 
section 7(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH 
Act) (29 U.S.C. 656) to advise the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary 
of Health and Human Services on matters relating to the administration 
of the OSH Act. NACOSH is a continuing advisory body and operates in 
compliance with provisions in the OSH Act and the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 2), and regulations issued pursuant to 
those laws (29 CFR 1912a, 41 CFR part 101-6 and 102-3).
    NACOSH is comprised of 12 members, all of whom the Secretary of 
Labor appoints, and nominations will be accepted for seven vacancies 
(29 CFR 1912a.2). The composition of the committee and categories of 
new members to be appointed are as follows:
     Four public representatives. Two will be appointed;
     Two management representatives. One will be appointed;
     Two labor representatives. Two will be appointed;
     Two representatives representing occupational safety 
professions. One will be appointed; and,
     Two representing occupational health professions. One 
health representative will be appointed.
    Pursuant to 29 CFR 1912a.2, the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (HHS) will designate for appointment by the Secretary of Labor 
one of the public representatives and the representative from the 
occupational health professions. Therefore, OSHA will provide to HHS 
all nominations, including supporting materials, for those membership 
categories.
    NACOSH members serve for staggered of two year terms, unless the 
member becomes unable to serve, resigns, ceases to be qualified to 
serve because he or she no longer meets the relevant representational 
requirements, or is removed by the Secretary of Labor. If a vacancy 
occurs before a term expires, the Secretary may appoint for the 
remainder of the unexpired term a new member who represents the same 
interest as the predecessor. The committee meets at least two times a 
year (Sec.  1912a.4).
    Any interested person or organization may nominate one or more 
qualified persons for membership. Nominations must include the 
nominee's name, occupation or current position, and contact 
information. The nomination also must identify the category that the 
candidate is qualified to represent, and include a resume of the 
nominee's background, experience, and qualifications. In addition, the 
nomination must state that the nominee is aware of the nomination and 
is willing to serve on NACOSH for a two-year term.
    NACOSH members will be selected upon the basis of their experience 
and competence in the field of occupational safety and health (Sec.  
1912a.2). The information received through this nomination process, in 
addition to other relevant sources of information, will assist the 
Secretary of Labor in appointing members to serve on NACOSH. In 
selecting NACOSH members, the Secretary of Labor will consider 
individuals nominated in response to this Federal Register notice, as 
well as other qualified individuals. OSHA will publish the new NACOSH 
membership list in the Federal Register.

Public Participation--Submission of Nominations and Access to Docket

    You may submit nominations (1) electronically at http://www.regulations.gov,
which is the Federal eRulemaking Portal; (2) by facsimile (FAX); or 
(3) by hard copy. All comments, attachments and other material must 
identify the Agency name and the OSHA docket number for this Federal 
Register notice (OSHA Docket No. NACOSH 2007-1). You may supplement 
electronic nominations by uploading document files electronically. If,
instead, you wish to mail additional materials in reference to an 
electronic or fax submission, you must submit three copies to the OSHA 
Docket Office (see ADDRESSES section). The additional materials must 
clearly identify your electronic nomination by name, date, and docket 
number so OSHA can attach them to your nomination.
    Because of security-related procedures, the use of regular mail may 
cause a significant delay in the receipt of nominations. For 
information about security procedures concerning the delivery of 
materials by hand, express delivery, messenger or courier service, 
please contact the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693-2350 (TTY (877) 889-
5627).
    Submissions are posted without change at http://www.regulations.gov.
Therefore, OSHA cautions interested parties about submitting personal 
information such as social security numbers and birth dates. Although
