Thumb

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created pursuant to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.).
By concentrating on four areas:
(1) firm enforcement of workplace safety and health rules;
(2) swift promulgation of strong, protective health and safety standards;
(3) increased outreach and help for workers and their employers in their efforts to eliminate and control workplace hazards; and
(4) partnership with the States that are running their own OSHA-approved programs.
OSHA sets and enforces workplace safety and health standards and assists employers in complying with those standards.
