Slated for 2 p.m. Eastern on April 27, the meeting is expected to cover proposed recommendations on potential elements of OSHA’s heat injury and illness prevention rulemaking, as well as the work group’s presentation at an upcoming NACOSH meeting.

The meeting is open to the public, but “participation will be in listen-only mode.” OSHA isn’t accepting comments or requests to speak. Anyone interested in attending must register via the NACOSH webpage.

The 12-member committee advises, consults with, and makes recommendations to the secretaries of labor and health and human services on matters relating to workplace safety and health.
