Preparedness planning for the H1N1 flu is the focus of a special meeting of OSHA’s Federal Advisory Council on Occupational Safety and Health (FACOSH). The meeting will be held Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2009, in Washington, D.C., according to an OSHA press release.

Participants will discuss recommendations in a draft report provided by the FACOSH Emerging Issues Workgroup on federal agency pandemic influenza preparedness planning for the federal workforce. The workgroup will present findings from its analysis of lessons the agency learned from the Spring 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak.

The meeting will be from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., in Room N-4437 B/C/D, U.S. Department of Labor, Frances Perkins Building, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C., 20210.

The committee 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 injuries and illnesses. FACOSH members also recommend methods for establishing and maintaining effective occupational safety and health programs in each federal agency.

For general information, contact Francis Yebesi, OSHA Office of Federal Agency Programs, at 202-693-2122 or e-mail ofap@dol.gov.
