The United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) was created by Congress in 1970. OSHA’s goal is to assure safety in the workplace for working men and women by setting, maintaining and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance to employers and their workers. OSHA  is administered by the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health who falls under the guidance of the Secretary of Labor, a member of the cabinet of the President of the United States.

OSHA’s website contains useful information regarding workplace safety and statistics regarding work injuries. Link:
