The establishment of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the United States’ Department of Labor goes hand-in-hand with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970 in its purpose of managing and ensuring the health and safety of workers within the country. In addition to the provisions put forth in the OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration creates and enforces new employment standards, provides outreach and training, establishes partnerships and encourages further improvement in the area of workplace health and safety. As some occupations become obsolete and new technologies create new jobs, this administration is consistently kept busy.
