Introduction to OSHA


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, is a federal agency that creates safety regulations in U.S. workplaces. OSHA’s role is less about fining people for noncompliance and more about helping employers keep their employees safe. This course will teach employees about OSHA's role in the workplace and how it works to increase worker safety. Employees will learn why OSHA was created, its goals and organizational structure, OSHA's inspection and citation procedures, and what resources OSHA offers to workers. This course is intended for general industry employees. This course is also a component of the OSHA 10 training course. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
