OSHA cancels meeting of National Advisory Committee on Occupational
Safety and Health OSH Professionals Pipeline Work Group

WASHINGTON - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cancelled the Dec. 13, 2016, meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Professionals Pipeline Work Group, in Washington, D.C. Cancellation of the work group meeting has no effect on the NACOSH meeting, which is still scheduled for Dec. 14.

OSHA cancelled the meeting because there was insufficient time to finalize travel arrangements for work group members after enactment of legislation to fund the Federal government after Dec. 9, 2016. OSHA will reschedule the NACOSH OSH Professionals Pipeline Work Group meeting. For more information, please contact Ms. Michelle Walker at (202) 693-2350 or walker.michelle@dol.gov.

NACOSH advises, consults with and makes recommendations to the secretaries of labor and health and human services on matters relating to the Occupational Safety and Health Act including regulatory, research, compliance assistance and enforcement issues.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA's role is to ensure these conditions for America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
