The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is set to get a new leader, as President Donald J. Trump has announced his nominee for Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.

The White House announced that Trump has tapped Scott A. Mugno, the Vice President for Safety, Sustainability and Vehicle Maintenance at FedEx Ground, located just outside of Pittsburgh.

About Mugno

A New York native, Mugno joined FedEx in 1994 first as a senior attorney for domestic regulatory affairs. From there, he became managing director of corporate safety, health and fire prevention for FedEx Express in 2000. In 2011, he was promoted to FedEx Ground.

President Donald J. Trump has announced his pick for Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.

At FedEx, Mugno leads four departments and approximately 200 professionals that focus on creating “a safe work environment” for the company’s 95,000 members. Mugno was twice awarded FedEx’s highest honor, the FedEx Five Star Award, for his safety leadership at FedEx Express, according to the White House announcement.

Mugno graduated from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas, and St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York.

He is also currently the chairman of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce OSHA subcommittee and serves on the American Bar Association, American Trucking Associations and National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

The Assistant Secretary position is subject to confirmation by the Senate.

What Could This Mean?

While Mugno’s stances aren’t set in stone, reports indicate he shares the Trump administration’s views on regulations. At a 2006 U.S. Chamber of Commerce discussion, Mugno was quoted as saying safety should start consistently with employees while noting that some current regulations have reached their limit.

"We've got to free OSHA from its own statutory and regulatory handcuffs," said Mugno. Business Insurance reported at the time that Mugno also suggested sunsetting regulations.
