AS 18.60.057. Occupational Safety and Health Review Board.

(a) There is created the Occupational Safety and Health Review Board within the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, referred to in this chapter as the OSHA Review Board. The board shall consist of three members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the legislature in joint session. One member of the board shall represent labor, one member shall represent industry, and the other shall represent the public. Each appointee must have adequate experience in the area of appointment. A member of the board may not be an employee of the state in another capacity nor may a member of the OSHA Review Board be a member or officer of another board or commission for which compensation other than per diem and travel expenses is paid.

(b) The members of the board serve staggered terms of four years. A vacancy caused by the death, resignation, or removal of a member before the expiration of the term for which the member was appointed shall be filled only for the remainder of the unexpired term. A member of the board may be removed by the governor for inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office.

(c) The governor shall designate one member of the board as chairman. This member shall serve as chairman for a term of one year, but may be appointed for successive terms.

(d) Members of the board are entitled to compensation in the amount of $50 a day for each day or portion of each day spent in actual meeting or on authorized official business incident to their duties and, in addition, they are entitled to all other transportation and per diem as provided by law for members of other state boards and commissions.

(e) The board may employ persons, subject to legislative appropriation, it considers necessary for the purpose of performing its duties under this chapter.
