Occupational Safety and Health Administration

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.
