CEO/President McMillan Retiring from National Safety Council

Alan McMillan, the National Safety Council's president and CEO since 2001, announced today he will retire effective Feb. 15. He has been part of the council, serving first on its board of directors and becoming executive vice president in 1995, for more than 15 years. Earlier in his career, McMillan was acting administrator of OSHA from April 1989 to October 1989, and he has served recently on the Labor Department's important NACOSH committee -- the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

"Every day I am humbled by the commitment of council staff, our board leadership, and the volunteer spirit of the more than 50,000 companies, unions, and government agencies that make up our membership," McMillan said in today's NSC news release. "I leave knowing America is safer than ever before because of their efforts."

McMillan's DOL career included serving as acting assistant secretary for MSHA and also acting assistant secretary for Employment Standards. The NSC board's chairman, Joseph Ucciferro, thanked McMillan for his service and commitment to safety "on behalf of the millions of people whose lives the council touches every day." Ucciferro, who is president and CEO, Commercial and Public Sector Businesses, at Day & Zimmermann, will lead the council's development of an interim leadership plan and the launch of a national search for a new chief executive. "Alan has cultivated an exceptional leadership team during his tenure," Ucciferro said. "I am confident that the council's efforts in safety training, public education, and advocacy will continue and thrive."
