OSHA is an official agency of the United States Department of Labor, and reports to the Secretary of Labor.
OSHA is the federal agency that was created to administer and enforce the Occupational Safety and Health Act (the OSH Act) of 1970. Congress enacted the OSH Act to address concerns Congress had about occupational safety conditions and occupational deaths in the nation's workplaces.
