Murray Statement on OSHA Nominee: “I Look Forward To Hearing How He Plans Up To Stand Up For Workers”

(Washington, D.C.) –Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee released the following statement on President Trump’s intention to nominate Scott Mugno as the Assistant Secretary of Labor of Occupational Safety and Health.

 

“Given President Trump’s unrelenting commitment to undermining worker protections and making it easier for corporations to take advantage of workers, it is critical that OSHA remains committed to enforcing health and safety standards—and punishing corporations who put their employees’ lives at risk. Mr. Mugno has spent his career working for big business, so I look forward to hearing how he plans up to stand up for workers and continue OSHA’s active role in deterring corporations from endangering workers’ health and safety.”
