Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels has appointed Dorothy Dougherty as the new deputy assistant secretary for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Dougherty brings more than 32 years of federal experience to this position, having served for 22 years in OSHA and several years in the Mine Safety and Health Administration as an industrial hygienist and coal mine inspector.

Prior to becoming OSHA’s deputy assistant secretary, she served as the director of the agency’s Directorate of Standards and Guidance. Dougherty first joined OSHA as chief of the Compliance and Technical Guidance Division for the Office of Federal Agency Programs. She also served the agency in other capacities, including deputy director of technical support and executive assistant for the OSHA assistant secretary. A graduate of Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Health, she also holds a Master of Science degree in Safety from Marshall University.

“Dorothy’s leadership and broad knowledge of the agency have already led to significant contributions to our agency and beyond,” said Assistant Secretary Michaels. “We look forward to continuing to work with her in her new capacity.”
