Present Duties

The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) administers the Oregon Safe Employment Act and enforces the state’s occupational safety and health rules, which establish minimum safety and health standards for Oregon employers. The division inspects workplaces for occupational safety and health hazards, investigates complaints about safety and health issues on the job and investigates fatal accidents to determine if the Oregon Safe Employment Act has been violated. The division also provides technical, educational and consultative services to help employers and their employees implement and improve injury and illness prevention plans.
