On August 1, 2013, the U.S. Senate confirmed President Barack Obama’s nomination of Cynthia Attwood for commissioner on the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC). This will be Ms. Attwood’s second term on the OSHRC, which will run until April 27, 2019.

Ms. Attwood’s confirmation restores a quorum in the OSHRC, allowing the independent agency to rule on cases under its review once again.
