ACCSH & NACOSH Advise OSHA

A meeting between the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) and the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) on Dec. 14 – 16 was held in order to advise OSHA on workplace and health issues and regulations at the Department of Labor headquarters in Washington, D.C.

OSHA was recommended by the ACCSH that they develop two different Backing Operations Web pages to separate: 1) hazards in construction and general industry and 2) operating equipment with an obstructed view in any direction of travel. Other recommendations were additions to OSHA’s next Standard Improvement Project and basic principles for developing an injury and illness prevention programs proposal to effectively address multi-employer construction in workplaces.

From NACOSH, OSHA received recommendations to: 1) to keep the injury and illness prevention program proposed rule as the highest priority on the agency’s Regulatory Agenda; 2) to enhance its efforts to issue the proposed silica rule so that the public hearing and comment period can commence and to protect workers from this serious workplace hazard; and 3) to support and fund, along with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and other appropriate parties, a symposium to present best practices of small, medium, and large workplaces on injury and illness prevention programs.
