OSHA is accepting membership nominations to the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) to further the agency's efforts to protect the safety and health of America’s workers, according to an agency press release.

NACOSH is a continuing advisory committee established under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that has advised the Secretaries of Labor, and Health and Human Services for nearly 40 years on occupational safety and health issues such as site-specific targeting, whistleblower protection, and continuing outreach to Latino workers.

OSHA is seeking nominees who possess occupational safety and health expertise and are qualified to represent workers, employers, the public, safety and health professionals. Nominees will fill two public, one management, one occupational safety and one occupational health representative vacancies. The Secretary of Labor appoints the committee's 12 members, two of whom are designated by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Committee members serve two year terms and meet at least twice a year.

Nominations may be submitted at www.regulations.gov, the Federal eRulemaking Portal. If submitting nominations by mail, send three copies to the OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. OSHA-2010-0012, U.S. Department of Labor, N-2625, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20210. Nominations not exceeding 10 pages may be faxed to 202-693-1648. The nominations deadline is July 20, 2010.
