Environmental Crime - Occupational Safety And Health Act

conditions osha

Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act in 1970. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the U.S. Department of Labor enforces the provisions of the act. The act requires workplaces be safe environments, free of hazards. Exposure to harmful chemicals, unsanitary conditions, excessively hot or cold conditions, and mechanical dangers are all prohibited under the Safety and Health Act. OSHA works closely with the EPA to monitor conditions, investigate, and prosecute anyone responsible for violations.
