SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    OSHA is reopening the record and extending the deadline for 
submitting nominations for membership on FACOSH until March 31, 2010. 
OSHA is extending the FACOSH nominations deadline because of weather-
related Federal government closures during the week preceding the 
deadline. For instructions and information about submitting 
nominations, see 74 FR 66151.
    On December 14, 2009, OSHA published a Federal Register notice 
inviting interested parties to submit nominations for FACOSH membership 
by February 12, 2010 (74 FR 66151). OSHA requested nominations to fill 
10 vacancies on FACOSH, five labor and five management members. Five 
vacancies occurred during CY 2009 and five vacancies will occur in CY 
2010. The Secretary of Labor will appoint new members to two-year or 
three-year terms depending on whether the member will be filling a CY 
2009 or CY 2010 vacancy.
    FACOSH is authorized to advise the Secretary of Labor on all 
matters relating to the occupational safety and health of Federal 
employees (Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 688), 
5 U.S.C. 7902, Executive Order 13446). This includes providing advice 
on how to reduce and keep at a minimum the number of injuries and 
illnesses in the Federal workforce and how to encourage the 
establishment and maintenance of effective occupational safety and 
health programs in each Federal department and agency.
    Authority and Signature: David Michaels, PhD MPH, Assistant 
Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, directed the 
preparation of this notice under the authority granted by section 19 of 
the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 668), 5 
U.S.C. 7902, the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App), 
Executive Order 13511, 29 CFR part 1960 (Basic Program Elements of for 
Federal Employee Occupational Safety and Health Programs), 41 CFR part 
102-3, and Secretary of Labor's Order 5-2007 (72 FR 31160).
