Congress established ACCSH in Section 107 of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (Construction Safety Act (CSA)) (40 U.S.C. 3704(d)(4)), to advise the Secretary in the formulation of construction safety and health standards as well as on policy matters arising under the CSA and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.).

ACCSH operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C.

Pursuant to FACA (5 U.S.C. App. 2, 14(b)(2)), the ACCSH charter must be renewed every two years.

The new charter updates the procedures for appointment of individuals to Department of Labor advisory committees.
