This week’s program

 Next Week’s Program July 18, 2018.

Ervin Dimeny

is the
Commissioner for the
Department of Workplace
Standards, which has the
primary responsibility of
enforcing Kentucky’s occu-
pational safety and health
laws, wage and hour laws,
child labor laws, and admin-
istering the state’s registered
apprenticeship programs.
Dimeny served the past eight years as
manager of Court Interpreting Services for
Kentucky’s Administrative Office of the Courts
(AOC) where he oversaw the Kentucky Court
of Justice Language Access Program and
administered the interpreter training and certi-
fication program.
“Ervin is a consensus-builder whose back-
ground includes bringing diverse stakehold-
ers together,” said Secretary Ramsey. “His
ability to manage the cabinet’s compliance
resources, communicate safe workplace pro-
cedures, while also promoting career readiness
through our registered apprenticeships across
the state, will be essential to meeting our
goal of empowering and protecting Kentucky’s
workforce. Ervin’s leadership will be a big
asset to not only the Labor Cabinet, but to the
entire Commonwealth.”
Under his leadership, the interpreter train-
ing and certification program received broad
acclaim for its collaborative efforts with uni-
versities and industry experts to create stan-
dards and best practices for training interpret-
ers, judges and practitioners. These initiatives
proved effective in helping the AOC meet
the growing demand for language access in
Kentucky’s courts. In this role, he worked
closely with the Office of the General Counsel
on various federal and state laws related to
compliance matters.
Dimeny received a bachelor’s degree from
the Hungarian Baptist Theological Seminary,
a Master’s of Divinity in Theology from
the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary,
and a Juris Doctorate from the University of
Louisville Brandeis School of Law.
