OSHA Strategic Plan FY1997-FY2002

Message From Occupational Safety And Health Administration
Assistant Secretary Charles Jeffress

It gives me great pleasure to present the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 1997-2002. This important document serves as a guide for the agency into the 21st Century and provides written affirmation of our dedication to protect the safety and health of America's workers.

The strategic plan, developed through consultation with many federal, state and private organizations, is in accordance with the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. It also supports Secretary of Labor Alexis M. Herman's initiatives to strengthen the entire department by making it more efficient and responsive to the needs of our customers -- American workers and their families.

OSHA is pursuing three overarching strategic goals that govern the plan:

  • Improve workplace safety and health for all workers, as evidenced by fewer hazards, reduced exposures, and fewer injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.
  • Change workplace culture to increase employer and worker awareness of, commitment to, and involvement in safety and health.
  • Secure public confidence through excellence in the development and delivery of OSHA's programs and services.
Specific, quantifiable performance goals and objectives are included in the strategic plan.

As information and technology evolve, so will OSHA's Strategic Plan. We are in a neverending pursuit of excellence. We encourage feedback from our stakeholders to make the agency more effective.


Charles Jeffress
Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health
