Notice is hereby given of the date and location of the next meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH), established under section 7(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 656) to advise the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Health and Human Services on matters relating to the administration of the Act. NACOSH will hold a meeting on March 12-13, 2002, in Room N3437 (B-D), U.S. Department of Labor, located at 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC. The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 1 p.m. on March 12, and last until approximately 5 p.m. The meeting will reconvene on March 13 at 9 a.m. and end at approximately 4 p.m.
The meeting will begin with an overview of activities of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Other agenda items include: a presentation on OSHA's enforcement, compliance assistance, and regulatory issues as well as a presentation by NIOSH on the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory including its activities related to the World Trade Center disaster.
Written data, views or comments for consideration by the committee may be submitted, preferably with 20 copies, to Vivian Allen at the address provided below. Any such submissions received prior to the meeting will be provided to the members of the committee and will be included in the record of the meeting. Because of the need to cover a wide variety of subjects in a short period of time, there is usually insufficient time on the agenda for members of the public to address the committee orally. However, any such requests will be considered by the Chair who will determine whether or not time permits. Any request to make an oral presentation should state the amount of time desired, the capacity in which the person would appear, and a brief outline of the content of the presentation. Individuals with disabilities who need special accommodations should contact Veneta Chatmon (phone: 202-693-1912: FAX 202-693-1634) one week before the meeting.
An official record of the meeting will be available for public inspection in the OSHA Technical Data Center (TDC) located in Room N2625 of the Department of Labor Building (202-693-2350).
