"Scott is a very familiar face to ATA, having been a longtime and active member in our organization," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "Throughout that whole time, he has been a strong and committed voice for safety and responsibility. He is an outstanding choice to lead OSHA and I look forward to working with him after his swift confirmation."
