The term OSHA refers to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA is a segment of the Department of Labor that was established in the 1970s. Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1979 when it recognized that workplace accidents and health hazards have a huge impact on the nation’s economy.
OSHA’s mission is to protect all workers in America from workplace hazards that could jeopardize their health or safety. To accomplish this mission, OSHA sets safety standards, performs inspections to ensure employers comply with the applicable standards, and provides training and materials designed to prevent accidents.
