WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao named Jonathan Snare deputy assistant secretary for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Tuesday.

Chao said Snare will take over as acting assistant secretary for OSHA when its current chief, Assistant Secretary John Henshaw, leaves office Dec. 31.

"John Henshaw has been a tremendous leader at OSHA, charting a new course for the agency that has helped make workers safer and healthier than before. We want to keep the momentum going in this same direction by advancing some of the individuals who have helped achieve these results," Chao said.

Snare replaces R. Davis Layne, who is retiring Dec. 31, as deputy assistant secretary for OSHA.
