What is Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)?
‘Occupational Safety and Health Administration’ or ‘OSHA‘ is an agency that ensures the safety of staff members in the workplace. It is also responsible for providing the companies with health and safety regulations too.
As it comes under the US Department of Labor, it has jurisdiction all over the USA and is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of the workplaces via appropriate training and outreach.
The OSHA was established with the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. OSHA’s administrator is the assistant secretary of ‘Labor for Occupational Safety and Health’ and answers to the secretary of labor, who is a member of the cabinet of the president of the US.
