LABOR DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES MORE DETAILS ON ERGONOMICS FORUMS

WASHINGTON -- The Labor Department today announced more details on the ergonomics forums scheduled to be held around the United States in July. A Notice containing further information appears in the Federal Register today, June 22, 2001.

The three public forums will be held on the following dates at the following locations and times:

Washington, DC area -- The forum will be held on July 16 and 17, 2001, at the George Mason University, Arlington Campus Professional Center, Room 329, 3401 North Fairfax Drive, Arlington, VA. The starting time will be 9:00 a.m. on July 16 and 8:30 a.m. on July 17.

Chicago, Illinois -- The forum will be held on July 20, 2001, at the University of Chicago, Ida Noyes Hall, 1212 East 59th Street. It will begin at 9:00 a.m.

Stanford, California -- The forum will be held on July 24, 2001, at Stanford University, Kresge Auditorium of Stanford Law School. It will begin at 9:00 a.m.

Interested individuals and groups may make public comments at these forums. Because time is limited, it may not be possible to schedule all those who make a request to speak. In addition, because of the time constraints, individuals who are selected to speak will be allotted no more than 10 minutes to make a presentation. Following each presentation, a panel may question the presenter on relevant issues.

More information on submission requirements for notices of intention to speak at any of the forums, as well as submission of statements and other written comments, can be found in the Federal Register Notice or at OSHA's homepage at www.osha.gov.
