OSHA announced in a press release that the agency will hold a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) April 14 and 16, 2010, in Houston. For more than 35 years, ACCSH and OSHA have collaborated to reduce injuries, illnesses and fatalities in the construction industry caused by such hazards as falling objects, unstable trenches, power tools, and silica inhalation. See the notice in the Federal Register for more details.

ACCSH also advises Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels, Ph.D., M.P.H., on worker safety and health in the construction industry. The agenda for this meeting will include updates on OSHA activities and reports from ACCSH work groups that address construction topics related to green jobs, diversity and multilingual issues, nailgun safety, fall protection, prevention by design, and silica exposure, among others.

ACCSH and its work group meetings will all be held at the Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown, 1700 Smith Street, Houston, Texas 77002.
