The Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission could be operating at full capacity once more after going more than two years without a full board of members.
President Donald Trump formally nominated James Sullivan to OSHRC on May 12, potentially filling one of two open spots on the three-member commission if he is confirmed by the Senate. The review commission, which is the final layer of administrative appeal before a federal appeals court, has operated without a full complement of members since April 2015.
The other open position could be filled by Heather L. MacDougall, a former acting chair and member of the commission. Trump promoted MacDougall shortly after his inauguration in January to head the review commission and later tapped her for a second term on the board after her term expired April 27.
Sullivan, a labor and employment attorney in Pennsylvania, has 37 years of experience representing employers and has practiced occupational safety and health law, according to a White House statement. He joined the Philadelphia office of Cozen O'Connor as a shareholder in early May, according to a May 8 statement from the law firm.
Sullivan most recently served as the management co-chair of the Occupational Safety and Health Law Committee of the American Bar Association’s Labor Law Section and as a partner at the law firm, Buchanan, Ingersoll and Rooney.
