OSHA regulations and being safe on the job

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration, or OSHA as most people have come to know it by, is the governmental agency responsible for the application of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. OSHA is an agency under the U.S. Department of Labor and was established with the passing of the OSH Act. The organization covers most private businesses in the U.S. as well as 27 states.
