The National Safety Council congratulates Jim Frederick on his appointment as Deputy Assistant Secretary for OSHA, announced January 20, 2021. Deputy Assistant Secretary Frederick – who came to work for NSC as a result of the Council’s acquisition of ORC HSE Strategies last November – will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the post. His dedication to protecting workers makes him a superb choice to lead OSHA at a critical moment. COVID-19 has been the single largest workplace safety issue of a generation. Our country needs thoughtful leadership to help employers navigate the remainder of the pandemic and effectively restore our economy. Deputy Assistant Secretary Frederick will prove such guidance.

We look forward to working closely with Deputy Assistant Secretary Frederick and Secretary-designee of Labor Marty Walsh to save lives and prevent injuries, from the workplace to anyplace.
