The work group will continue discussions on promoting careers in occupational safety and health and growing the next generation of OSH professionals. The work group will also hear from NIOSH about their programs and initiatives in this area.

NACOSH will meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., December 14, in Room N-4437, Conference Rooms A - D, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20210.
