Who Should Be The Next Director of OSHA?
Trump is sworn into office next January, one of his Presidential duties will be
to nominate someone to serve as the new head of the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA). The last time this post came open, the American Society
of Safety Engineers (ASSE), of which I have been a Professional member since
1992, endorsed the current director of OSHA, Dr. David Michaels, for that post.
However, I do not recall anyone from the ASSE asking me for my opinion about Dr.
Michaels or any other nominee for that matter.So what I want to do right now is to get an early jump and provide my
input for the ideal candidate to endorse when this job comes open. Right now I am sure many of you are probably saying
out loud . . .
