Occupational Safety and Health Administrationn of Labor (OSHA)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ensures safe and healthful working conditions for workers by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.


Iowa OSHA helps prevent illnesses and injuries at workplaces. Prevention is not just good for workers and their families; it also helps reduce workers’ compensation and related expenses for employers.  Iowa OSHA works closely with federal OSHA so workplace safety and health standards are very similar from state to state.
