An executive in charge of safety at FedEx Ground was nominated by President Donald J. Trump on Oct. 27 as the new Assistant Secretary of Labor of Occupational Safety and Health, the White House announced in a press release.
Scott A. Mugno, current vice president for safety, sustainability, and vehicle maintenance at FedEx Ground in Pittsburgh, PA, will lead the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) if he is confirmed by the Senate. He also has served as managing director of corporate safety, health, and fire protection at FedEx Express in Memphis.
OSHA has operated without an administrator since the most recent agency head, Dorothy Dougherty, retired last June.
Serving in a variety of safety-related roles at FedEx since 2000, Mugno assumed his present role in 2011 and oversees 200 employees across four departments, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported.
Mugno is a graduate of Washburn University School of Law and St. John’s University.
