The FDA National Environmental, Safety, and Health Committee (NESHC) will be meeting soon. The NESHC is similar to local environmental, safety and, health (ESH) committees but looks at broader issues across the agency per Article 50 of the CBA, Executive Order 12196, and OSHA.
The NESHC also supports the local ESH committees. The NESHC is planning to visit two field locations in 2017 to meet with the local ESH committees.
NTEU Chapter 254 Executive Vice President David Foran serves on the NESHC. He has served as a safety inspector and as a member of the Kansas City District and Laboratory EHS Committee since 2010, and currently serves as a member of the Kansas City Laboratory EHS Committee. David has also represented NTEU Chapter 254 in the Kansas City Federal Field Safety and Health Council for many years.
If you have environmental, safety, or health issues that you think need to be addressed at the national level, please contact David.
