WISHA Advisory Committee (WAC)


In 1997 the Legislature passed Substitute House Bill 1887, which was codified under RCW 49.17.055 (app.leg.wa.gov) and formally established the WISHA Advisory Committee. This committee provides a forum for WISHA program and policy discussions with labor and employer representatives. The primary focus of the committee is the advancement of worker protection in Washington State.
