President Trump Nominates Scott Mugno of FedEx to Head OSHA
On Monday, October 27, 2017, President Trump nominated Scott Mugno, currently the vice-president for safety at FedEx Ground, to be the new head of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Mugno is well known in Washington among members of business-oriented organizations. So, what does this mean for employers? Well, Jordan Barab, Deputy Assistant Secretary of OSHA during the Obama administration, thinks Mugno will primarily change the agency's focus from enforcement to helping employers comply with the rules and law.
