The panel that decides on appeals of Occupational Safety and Health Administration citations is another step closer to being back at full strength for the first time since late April.
The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions by voice votes approved Aug. 2 two nominations to the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. Currently, only one of the commission’s three seats is filled, delaying the panel’s ability to hear cases involving contested OSHA citations.
President Donald Trump nominated in May two attorneys—Heather L. MacDougall, a former acting chairwoman and member of the commission, and James Sullivan, who in addition to his private practice served as the management co-chairman of the Occupational Safety and Health Law Committee of the American Bar Association’s Labor Law Section.
The next step for the nominatees is consideration by the full Senate. As of Aug. 2 a vote had not been scheduled, Senate staff members said.
