Former OSHA Program Analyst Named NGFA Director of Regulatory Affairs

The National Grain and Feed Association (Washington, D.C.) announced that Jess McCluer has joined its staff as director of regulatory affairs, responsible for managing the association's wide-ranging operations programs for grain elevators, feed mills, and grain-processing plants, as well as overseeing activities regarding employee safety and industrial health, environmental issues, grain-handling facility design and equipment, grain inspection and weighing issues, and grain and feed quality. In the role, McCluer will also serve as staff liaison to the NGFA-GEAPS Joint Safety, Health and Environmental Quality Committee; Grain Grades and Weights Committee; and the newly formed NGFA-GEAPS-NAEGA Joint Agroterrorism-Prevention and Facility Security Committee.

Previously, from April 2003 to May 2007, McCluer was a program analyst for OSHA's Office of Outreach Services and Alliances, working with trade associations, professional societies, academia, unions, and government agencies to coordinate the implementation of national alliances and the development of compliance assistance resources such as Web-based training tools. He received the Secretary of Labor's Exceptional Achievement Award in 2003 and 2005.

Before joining OSHA, McCluer served from 1999 to 2003 as manager of government affairs for the Shipbuilders Council of America, overseeing the association's Safety, Environmental, and Human Resources Committees. A native of Dallas, he graduated from Texas A&M with degrees in political science and international studies.
