Advisory Committees

It is the policy of the State of Oregon that whenever possible the public be involved in the development of public policy by agencies and in the drafting of rules.

Oregon OSHA appoints advisory committees as one method to gather public views from individuals, business, and associations, representing the interests of persons likely to be affected by the rule.

The advisory committee is an excellent source of determining what, if any, fiscal impact the new rulemaking may have on the regulated community. When Oregon OSHA appoints an advisory committee the recommendations are considered before adopting, amending, or repealing a rule. Advisory committee meetings are open to the public.
