New chief tapped for OSHA

Posted by Clarion Safety on 28th Jul 2009

President Obama has announced his nominee to head OSHA, a post that carries the Assistant Secretary title in the Department of Labor.

The nominee is David Michaels, PhD, MPH, an epidemiologist who is currently Research Professor at the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services. President Obama noted that he has conducted numerous studies of the health effects of occupational exposure to toxic chemicals, including asbestos, metals and solvents, and has written extensively on science and regulatory policy.

The top OSHA job has been closely watched by SH&E professionals as an indication of where the chief agency charged with workplace safety is headed. See the full White House news release here.

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis has already made it clear that OSHA is "back in the enforcement business," as she put it during a speech to the ASSE conference earlier this summer. See a video clip from her speech here.
