ITASCA, IL – The National Safety Council is proud to announce the appointment of John Dony, senior director of thought leadership, to the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH). The 12-member committee advises, consults with and makes recommendations to the Secretaries of Labor and Health and Human Services on matters related to occupational safety and health.

“It is an honor to be appointed to this influential committee to prioritize worker safety and health across the country,” said Dony. “NSC looks forward to continuing being part of the national dialogue around worker safety and health, especially at this pivotal time in occupational safety and health.”

NACOSH members are appointed by the Secretary of Labor to represent labor, management, safety and health professionals and the public, and all serve two-year terms. With this appointment, Dony will serve as one of two management representatives, bringing the perspective of NSC and its more than 15,000 member companies to the table.

Dony has served as a safety advocate for the majority of his career. He joined NSC in 2007, and in his current role, leads and provides strategic vision for major NSC workplace safety and health initiatives, including the Campbell Institute, Work to Zero, SAFER and Ergo SolutionsLab. Dony also spearheads new impact programs in areas such as ESG and psychological safety and serves as one of the Council’s key subject matter experts on workplace safety and health.

The Committee holds at least two meetings per year at the Department of Labor in Washington, D.C. Meetings are open to the public.
