Senate Committee Holds Hearing for OSHA Head Nominee

AGC Supports Senate Confirmation of Nominee
The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions held a hearing this week to consider President Trump’s nomination of Scott Mugno to serve as the next Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The Senators who participated in the hearing focused their questions on Mugno’s previous track record in the private sector and his views on OSHA’s role in workplace safety and his vision for increasing OSHA’s compliance assistance efforts. Given the makeup of the Senate, it is expected that Mugno’s nomination will advance and he will likely be confirmed in the next several weeks.
AGC sent a letter to the committee calling for approval of Mr. Mugno’s nomination. During his time at FedEx Ground, Mr. Mugno served as managing director of corporate safety, health and fire prevention from 2000 – 2011 until his promotion to vice president of safety, sustainability and vehicle maintenance. Over this period, he demonstrated that he possesses the leadership and collaborative qualities needed to lead OSHA.  He recognized that by working together, the regulated community and the agency can achieve results in further advancing safety in the workplace.
