The National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health will hold a public meeting August 5-6 in Washington.

The meeting will be held in Room N-5437 A-D at the Department of Labor, Frances Perkins Building, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W. On August 5, it will begin at 1 p.m. and last until approximately 4:45 p.m. The meeting on the second day will run from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m.

Agenda items will include:

  • Brief overview of current activities on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

  • Discussion of the standards development process.

  • Discussion of targeting and performance measuring system.

  • Report on the 11(c) task force, which deals with "whistleblower" protection.

  • Needlestick injuries.

  • Privatization and external regulation of some Department of Energy (DOE) facilities.

Written data, views or comments for consideration by the committee may be submitted, preferably with 20 copies, to Joanne Goodell, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); Room N-3641, 200 Constitution Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C., 20210; or phone 202-219-8021 ext. 107. Any submissions received prior to the meeting will be provided to the members of the committee and included in the meeting's record.

Due to the need to cover a wide variety of subjects, there is usually insufficient time on the agenda for the public to address the committee orally. However, any such request will be considered by the chair. Any person making such a request should state the amount of time desired, the capacity in which the person would appear and a brief outline of the presentation's content

Individuals with disabilities who need special accommodations should contact Theresa Berry at 202-219-8151 ext. 106, at least one week prior to the meeting.

An official record of the meeting will be available for public inspection in the OSHA Technical Data Center (TDC) located in Room N-2625 of the Department of Labor building. The phone number is 202-219-7500.

NACOSH was established under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 to advise the secretaries of labor and health and human services on occupational safety and health programs and policies. Members of the 12-person advisory committee are chosen on the basis of their knowledge and experience in that area.

Notice of the NACOSH meeting is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on July 16, 1998.
