On Oct. 27, President Donald J. Trump nominated Scott A. Mugno, vice president for Safety, Sustainability and Vehicle Maintenance at FedEx Ground in Pittsburgh, Pa., to be assistant secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health -- the head of OSHA.

The American Trucking Associations' president, Chris Spear, issued a statement congratulating Mugno. The statement says Mugno has served on or headed several key ATA policy committees, including the Safety Policy Committee, Labor and Regulatory Affairs Policy Committee, the Hazardous Materials Committee, the Hours-of-Service Subcommittee, and the Ergonomics Subcommittee, and he is currently the chairman of the American Transportation Research Institute's Research Advisory Committee.

Mugno previously was managing director for FedEx Express Corporate Safety, Health and Fire Protection in Memphis, Tenn., and his responsibilities in both those positions have included developing, promoting, and facilitating the safety and health program and culture, according to the White House text of the announcement.

It says Mugno twice received FedEx's highest honor, the FedEx Five Star Award, for his safety leadership at FedEx Express. Mugno is a graduate of Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas, and St. John's University.
