Enforcement Memos

Enforcement memos may provide agency policies and/or supplementary enforcement guidance, and some memos may include an interpretation of an OSHA standard. These memos are collected by topic on this webpage. Memos that provide new or revised agency policies are signed by the Assistant Secretary, and those providing only supplementary enforcement guidance are signed by the Director of Enforcement Programs.
