What is OSHA?

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration, or OSHA, is a federal agency designed to protect private and some public sector worker’s rights, as well as the workers themselves. With an office in Oklahoma City, workers have easy access to local, helpful resources in the event of an accident at work. The Oklahoma office assures safe and healthful working conditions for working people by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance. Enforcement of these standards is maintained through random inspections and an office which received employee complaints. If you believe your employer is placing you in a dangerous situation, an OSHA complaint may be appropriate. OSHA complaints often result in an inspection, and you can request your name be kept secret.
