Washington, DC 20210


Dear Ms. Goodell:

Following is the nomination of Margaret Carroll for reappointment to serve on the OSHA National Advisory Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH).

As you are aware from previous ASSE correspondence to OSHA, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) with almost 33,000 members has been committed to the protection of people, property, and the environment since 1911. Part of this commitment includes providing Society input to our national leaders. The Society believes that national agencies such as OSHA maintain a necessary national focus on occupational safety and health. Accordingly, the national committee representatives who advise OSHA will play a key role in the maintenance of this focus.
To this end, we are again nominating Ms. Carroll for appointment to NACOSH. She has clearly shown through her contributions to NACOSH that she is a dedicated safety professional committed to protecting people, property, and the environment. In brief, her accomplishments have been:

  • Actively participated in scheduled meetings, in addition to attending numerous conference calls and NACOSH activities.
  • Service on the Performance Measures and OSHA Strategic Planning Work Group.
  • Service on the Safety and Health Management Program Standard Work Group.
  • Assigned to be an adjunct member of the Ergonomics Work Group.

A review of Ms. Carroll's contributions to NACOSH speaks to why she warrants reappointment. OSHA would be hard pressed to find an individual with more overall professional safety experience, integrity, and dedication than Ms. Carroll. In fact, these are the very reasons why the Society initially nominated her as a candidate for this most important position in 1996.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If we may be of further assistance in facilitating a meeting, or providing additional information please do not hesitate to contact the Society.


Frank H. Perry, CSP, PE
Society President, 1999-2000
