The Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) work group developing a proposal for a safety and health program standard for the construction industry will meet May 30 in Washington, D.C.

The meeting will be held in Room S-3215 A&B U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The work group, in its April 10 meeting, asked interested parties to provide comments and recommendations for a construction safety and health program standard by May 17, 1996.
