OSHA Looks for Employer Safety Feedback
OSHA officials are looking for companies to share their safety concerns as part of an upcoming meeting.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health will hold an online meeting from 2-4 pm Jan. 10 that is open to the public.
Officials will provide updates about the committee’s membership and recent OSHA developments, a report from the Heat Work Group, and will have a follow-up discussion on the agency’s Whistleblower Protection Program.
CBIA plans to participate in this event. Employers with issues related to employment safety can contact Phillip Montgomery.
Employers can also independently participate by registering on the NACOSH webpage.
Submit comments and requests to speak to the Federal eRulemaking Portal, Docket Number OSHA-2022-0002, by Jan. 3, 2023. The Federal Register notice provides submission details.
Another opportunity for safety professionals to get involved in the regulatory process is by submitting a nomination for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health.
The Construction Safety Act established the committee to advise the secretary and assistant secretary of labor on policy matters arising under the CSA, and the formulation of construction standards.
The secretary will select 14 members to represent the interests of employers, employees, state safety and health agencies, and the public.
Members generally serve a two-year term, but can be reappointed. The advisory committee meets two to four times per year.
Submit nominations and supporting materials electronically to the Federal eRulemaking Portal, Docket No. OSHA-2022-0001. The deadline for submitting nominations is Jan. 13.
Both opportunities provide companies a chance to share their experiences. CBIA encourages membership participation in these events.
For more information, please contact CBIA‘s Phillip Montgomery (860.244.1982).
