OSHA Announces Meeting of the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health on February 21 and 22, 2024

In tomorrow’s Federal Register, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will announce public meeting sessions for the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) and its Workgroups on February 21 – 22, 2024. The ACCSH Workgroups on “Emerging Technology,” “Workzones,” and “Health in Construction” will meet on February 21. The full ACCSH will subsequently meet on February 22 to: (1) receive updates and remarks from the Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA; (2) receive an industry update from the Directorate of Construction; (3) facilitate a discussion on women in construction; (5) facilitate a discussion on unspecified ACCSH Workgroup reports; and (6) receive public comments. The ACCSH’s discussion on women in construction follows OSHA’s publication of a proposed rule on personal protective equipment in construction that seeks to help women pursue careers in construction that SWACCA submitted comments on with the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades in September 2023.

The meeting sessions will be held on February 21 – 22, 2024 beginning at 9am ET each day. The sessions will be available both remotely and in-person in Conference Room C-5320, Room 6, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210. Those interested in attending in-person must register by email to Gretta Jameson at by February 15, 2024. Virtual participation instructions will be made available here in advance. Written comments and requests to speak during the meeting sessions are due by February 15, 2024 and can be submitted here using Docket ID OSHA-2024-0002. Requests to speak must include: (1) the amount of time requested to speak; (2) the interest that the speaker represents (e.g., business, organization, affiliation), if any; and (3) a brief outline of the speaker’s presentation.
