OSHA MADE EASY
OSHA was created by the US Occupational Safety and Health Act, and is the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. In turn, this body mandates various standards and conducts mandatory inspections.
THE ACT ITSELF
"To assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women; by authorizing enforcement of the standards developed under the Act; by assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to assure safe and healthful working conditions; by providing for research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health; and for other purposes."
It contains a substantial number of provisions, and basically established a body with mandatory power to audit organizations for compliance against health and safety standards.

The resources offered on this portal have been brought together very much with the requirements of OSHA in mind. This particularly applies to the OSHA Health and Safety Manual/Kit, which contains support procedures, policies, forms, risk assessment checklists and guidence.
