|<< Back to State Occupational Safety and Health Plans
OSHSPA is the organization of officials from the 27 states that operate OSHA-approved state plans. OSHSPA also serves as the link from the state plans to federal agencies which have occupational safety and health jurisdiction and to Congress. The group holds three meetings a year with Federal OSHA, giving state programs the opportunity to address common problems and share information. It also provides information to states or territories that are considering application for state plan status. OSHSPA representatives have appeared before congressional committees and other bodies to report on job safety and health issues.
