Mugno Nominated for Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA

In late October, President Trump nominated Scott Mugno as assistant secretary of labor for OSHA. Mugno’s nomination will face a Senate committee hearing on December 5, 2017. If Mugno’s nomination is approved by the committee, the Senate will vote on whether to approve his nomination. 

Mugno has long been predicted to be President Trump’s nominee. For the past six years, Mugno has served as Vice President, Safety, Sustainability & Vehicle Maintenance for FedEx Ground. Mugno has a strong reputation as a dedicated and practical safety professional. He is expected to continue Secretary Acosta’s efforts to steer OSHA in a direction focusing more effort on cooperative programs like the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) and the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) and less effort on regulatory initiatives and aggressive enforcement.
