President Trump has appointed Scott A. Mugno of Pennsylvania to head up the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as assistant secretary of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health.

Mugno comes from the private sector as the vice president for safety, sustainability and vehicle maintenance at FedEx Ground in Pittsburgh, Pa. and he previously served as the managing director for FedEx Express Corporate Safety, Health and Fire Protection in Memphis, Tenn.

His responsibilities in both those positions included developing, promoting and facilitating the safety and health program and culture and he was twice awarded FedEx’s highest honor, the FedEx Five Star Award, for his safety leadership at FedEx Express.

“OSHA has needed leadership in place to be able to address issues of high importance to home builders and remodelers, such as providing compliance assistance for the silica rule.” said Robert Matuga, assistant vice president for labor, safety and health at NAHB. “NAHB and the members of our Construction Safety and Health Committee look forward to working closely with the assistant secretary to continue improving workplace safety in the home building industry.”
