The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has scheduled a meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health’s OSH Professionals Pipeline Work Group. The meeting will take place Nov. 15 in Washington, D.C.
Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels has asked the OSH Professionals Pipeline Work Group to develop recommendations to grow the next generation of occupational safety and health professionals. “The size of the field is small and there is increasing concern about how these gaps will be filled as the workforce ages,” Michaels said.
The meeting will enable the work group to hear from representatives of professional safety and health organizations and other stakeholders about their initiatives, best practices and model programs to promote careers in occupational safety and health.
The meeting is open to the public and will start at 1 p.m. ET in Room N-3647 at the U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20210. Those interested in attending the meeting in person or by teleconference, submitting written comments, or making an oral statement should contact Ms. Michelle Walker at 202-693-2235 or Walker.Michelle@dol.gov by the day before the meeting.
