Senate Confirms New OSHA Head, Doug Parker

October 27, 2021

Earlier this week, the Senate confirmed Doug Parker to the lead the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). Parker will be the first head of OSHA in almost 5 years. Prior to OSHA, Parker was the Chief at Cal/OSHA, where he administered their COVID-19 emergency temporary standards (ETS) for workplace safety. He is an outspoken advocate for workers’ rights. 

MCAA will continue to work closely with OSHA, and we look forward to working with the new assistant secretary. Under the new OSHA administration, we expect to see increased engagement with employers, which highlights the need for all of us to focus on our safety & health programs. This is a great time for members to learn about, and take advantage of MCAA’s safety and health resources, all of which are available to members for free as a benefit of membership.  

We’ve congratulated Doug Parker on his confirmation and wished him the best at OSHA.
