We’ve just received news that last night the Senate unanimously confirmed our friend and colleague, Dr. David Michaels as an Assistant Secretary of Labor — specifically, Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). He starts sometime next week.
Now the top two posts (Michaels as Director, Jordan Barab as Deputy) are held by strong advocates for the health and safety of workers. We will say here publicly what we said to David and Jordan privately. The way ahead will be difficult but we’re all here to help. Just ask.
