The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor. The role of OSHA is to promote the safety and health of America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual process improvement in workplace safety and health.
OSHA was formed under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which states that employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for employees.
