From a January 11, 2013, ASSE press release –

American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) President Richard A. Pollock, CSP,
responds to the recent resignation of U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis:

“On the announcement of her resignation, ASSE thanks and congratulates Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis for her service to the nation. We are pleased that, under her leadership, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been a positive partner in the discussion about how to energize and move forward this nation’s commitment to occupational safety and health. While ASSE and its members may not agree on every direction the current OSHA has taken, we do appreciate that under her leadership there has been willingness at OSHA to share ideas and listen to what our members have to say about the best ways to protect this nation’s workers on the job. Secretary Solis should be given
credit for supporting that environment. We have no doubt that Secretary Solis
will provide similar positive leadership in her future endeavors and wish her
good luck. As we do with every Administration’s choices to lead the Department
of Labor and OSHA, ASSE looks forward to working with a new Secretary of Labor who we trust will continue to provide thoughtful, cooperative leadership at the Department of Labor.”
