Short Desciption:
This booklet provides a general overview of basic topics related to OSHA and how it operates. Information provided does not determine compli- ance responsibilities under OSHA standards or the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act).

ntroduction The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to help employers and employees reduce injuries, illnesses and deaths on the job in America. Since then, workplace fatalities have been cut by more than 60 percent and occupa- tional injury and illness rates have declined 40 percent. At the same time, U.S. employment has more than doubled and now includes over 115 million workers at 7.2 million worksites. OSHA provides national leadership in occupation- al safety and health. The agency seeks to find and share the most effective ways to help prevent worker fatalities, and prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. When employees stay whole and healthy, busi- nesses also benefit. They experience lower work- ersí compensation insur ance costs, reduced med- ical expenditures, decreased payout for return-to- work programs, fewer faulty products, and lower costs for job accommodations for injured workers. There are also indirect benefits such as increased productivity, lower costs for training replacement workers and decreased costs for overtime.
