SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Assistant Secretary of Labor for

to encourage the establishment and maintenance of effective 
occupational safety and health programs in each Federal department and 
agency.

departments or agencies. Three management representatives will be 
appointed; and
     Eight members are representatives of labor organizations 
representing Federal employees. Three labor representatives will be 
appointed.
    FACOSH members serve staggered three-year terms, unless the member 
becomes unable to serve, resigns, ceases to be qualified to serve, or 
is removed by the Secretary. The Secretary may appoint FACOSH members 
to successive terms. FACOSH meets between two and six times annually 
for one-day meetings.
    Interested parties may nominate one or more qualified persons for 
membership. Others are invited and encouraged to submit endorsements in 
support of particular nominees. Nominations must include the nominee's 
name, occupation, current position, and contact information. The

other relevant sources of information, will assist the Secretary in 
making appointments to FACOSH. In selecting FACOSH members, the 
Secretary will consider individuals nominated in response to this 
Federal Register notice, as well as other qualified individuals. OSHA
