The Workforce Standards and Development Committee (previously known as the Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Committee) is a standing committee of the Missouri House of Representatives.

Per Rule 22 of the House Rules, standing, conference, interim and statutory committees in the Missouri House of Representatives are appointed by the Speaker of the House, with minority members of regular standing committees being appointed by the Minority Floor Leader. Special standing committees are appointed by the Speaker with input from the Minority Floor Leader on minority leadership. The Speaker is responsible for designating the number of members of each committee. Unless provided for by the act or resolution creating a committee, partisan balance of committee membership is to match partisan balance of the chamber as closely as possible, save for the Ethics Committee, which is to consist of an equal number of majority and minority members. The chair and vice-chair of each standing committee are appointed by the Speaker. The Speaker, Speaker Pro Tem, floor leaders, assistant floor leaders and whips serve as ex officio members on all standing committees. The chair and a minority member of the Budget Committee serve as ex officio members on all Appropriations committees. Ex officio members do not hold voting power unless properly appointed.[1]
