The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking nominations for membership to the Federal Advisory Council on Occupational Safety and Health (FACOSH). 

The council advises the secretary of labor on occupational safety and health issues related to the federal workforce, including advice on how to reduce the number of worker injuries and illnesses. FACOSH has advised OSHA on issues including pandemic H1N1 influenza protection for the federal workforce; qualifications and educational requirements of the federal safety and occupational health management job series and the industrial hygiene job series; and core competencies, appropriate training and continuing education under the Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act of 2010. The assistant secretary of labor for OSHA chairs FACOSH, which meets at least two times a year. 

The 16-member FACOSH council comprises eight members representing federal agency management and eight members from labor organizations representing federal workers. OSHA is seeking nominations to fill three labor and three management vacancies. The secretary of labor will appoint new members to three-year terms. 

Information on how to submit nominations is available in the July 7 Federal Register notice at www.dol.gov. Nominations may be submitted until September 7, 2011.
