Jordan Barab Named Acting OSHA Chief

Jordan Barab has been named Deputy Assistant Secretary for OSHA and Acting Assistant Secretary effective April 13, 2009. Barab has been an outstanding spokesperson for injured workers and was author of the well known and influential blog Confined Space. Internationally recognized as a stronger advocate for worker safety, his incredible advocacy for a safer work environment has been a hallmark of leadership. 

Peg Seminario, the AFL-CIO’s director for safety and health, says Barab is an “excellent choice” for OSHA deputy assistant secretary. 

He has decades of experience in safety and health working in the labor movement, at OSHA and in the House of Representatives on a broad range of issues. He has a deep commitment and dedication to protecting workers and will bring to OSHA the kind of energy and leadership that is sorely needed to move the agency in a new direction.
