External Advisory Committee

The EAC meets yearly for 1 day, typically in the Spring and serves as a representative panel comprising professionals in academic, business, labor, government, and the occupational health and safety community. The EAC provides expert guidance to the Center, sharing their reservoir of knowledge of national, regional and local occupational priorities and of the academic standards of excellence. Finally, the EAC supports the Center’s mission to scientifically and meaningfully impact the safety, health and well-being of the workforce, and uphold the highest standards of academic and outreach excellence.
