OSHA’s National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) will hold a meeting of the Emergency Response and Preparedness Subcommittee on February 24 to 25, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

Among other issues, the subcommittee will discuss potential elements of an emergency response and preparedness proposed rule, such as medical evaluation and fitness requirements, facility and equipment preparedness, vehicle preparedness and operation, pre-incident planning, emergency incident standard operating procedures, post-incident analysis, and program evaluation.

Both meetings will be held 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in Room N-4437 at the U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20210. The meetings are open to the public.
