OSHA appoints new regional administrator for Region II

WASHINGTON -- Robert D. Kulick has been selected as the new regional administrator for Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Region II (New York). Kulick previously served eight years as the area director of OSHA's Avenel, NJ Area Office.

"Bob's vast experience and knowledge of OSHA make him an invaluable member of our executive team," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "I congratulate him on his accomplishments and am confident he will continue to assure that this agency achieves its mission of improving workplace safety and health."

Kulick joined OSHA in 1977 as an industrial hygiene field compliance officer where he served for six years. Other positions held during his 31 years with OSHA include assistant administrator for Federal and State Operations in Region II, area director for OSHA's Parsippany Area Office, special assistant to the deputy assistant secretary for enforcement, and area director for the Manhattan Area Office.

A graduate of Cook College, Rutgers University, Kulick received a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental health. He is licensed by the state of New Jersey as a health inspector and has received eight Secretary of Labor Exceptional Achievement Awards, a Meritorious Achievement Award and a Distinguished Career Service Award.

OSHA's Region II is headquartered in New York City and covers New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. OSHA's role is to promote the safety and health of America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual process improvement in workplace safety and health.
