WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 21 , 2010 - Arent Fox LLP 's Mark S. Dreux, the head of the OSHA Group in Arent Fox’s Labor & Employment practice, has been named one of "The 50 Most Influential Leaders" by EHS Today magazine, the leading publication covering environment, health and safety issues.
In selecting the 50 Most Influential Leaders, EHS Today's editors wrote: "This year, because of recent (national and international) events, we found it even more difficult to narrow the playing field" and select "the leading people who are moving EHS in new directions."
The EHS Today list includes government appointees (such as OSHA Administrator David Michaels), academics, union EHS leaders, legislators, the presidents of professional associations, litigators, and safety industry leaders.
"Every person on this list — through their advocacy, teaching, research, mentoring, legislating, litigating or rulemaking — plays a role in steering the course of EHS," the editors wrote.
EHS Today described Mr. Dreux as "a nationally recognized leader in occupational safety and health law, specializing in representing employers and trade associations in all aspects of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. His practice includes counseling clients in regulatory compliance with the standards and regulations promulgated by OSHA and state plans, investigating significant workplace incidents, managing OSHA inspections, contesting OSHA citations, defending employers in OSHA enforcement actions, conducting safety and health audits and due diligence reviews and engaging in regulatory advocacy."
