OSHA to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

OSHA will be celebrating 50 years of workplace safety and health on April 28, 2021. President Nixon signed the Occupational Safety and Health Act on December 29, 1970, which was enacted on April 28, 1971. In its first half century, OSHA has helped transform America's workplaces in ways that have significantly reduced workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.
