For half a century, OSHA staff have been protecting the safety and health of workers in America.

Learn more below about who we are, what we do, and how you can join our team to make a difference in workers' lives.

 

Christian

I am OSHA: Christian - Compliance Assistance Specialist. "As a Compliance Assistance Specialist, I provide general information about OSHA and compliance assistance resources. Working for OSHA means that I can help workers, regardless of their immigration status, by ensuring that they have a safe and healthy workplace. It gives me great satisfaction knowing that I can make an impact and even potentially save a worker’s life when I share the importance of OSHA. The people I engage with spread the importance of safety and health to their friends, colleagues and loved ones." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Julie

I am OSHA: Julie - Program Specialist. "I have worked for OSHA for more than 23 years in various roles including secretary, supervisory secretary, compliance safety and health officer, program analyst and program specialist. I have been involved in disaster response efforts for Hurricane Sandy and performed fit testing and distributed respiratory protection during the World Trade Center response. I have also been responsible for training other safety professionals at the area office level. There is no career more rewarding as I know that my work has made a difference in the lives of workers as I helped to enhance their safety and health in the workplace. I have also acquired a network of intelligent, caring peers that helped me to develop my skills to be the best that I could be when I was working in the field." OSHA osha.gov/careers

David

I am OSHA: David - Compliance Safety and Health Officer. "Working at OSHA means I have the opportunity to be part of the long struggle to improve workplace conditions in the U.S. One day I was assigned to investigate a fatal accident. I realized something familiar about the location and remembered I had been at the same site about one year earlier at the start of the project. I choked back emotion, fearing I had missed something the first time. It turned out that the worker at the scaffolding company started at the very end of the project. It was an experience that I'll never forget. My role is to be a field presence and represent the ideals of safety and health regulations." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Nicolas

I am OSHA: Nicholas - Regional Supervisory Investigator. "My role as a supervisor is to support our team of investigators, so they are best equipped to complete the OSHA mission. I recently had the opportunity to testify in court on a successful case. It will likely set the precedence for years to come. That experience reinvigorated my passion for the job and reminded me that real people depend on us to do our job to the best of our abilities." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Kristina

I am OSHA: Kristina - Regional Supervisory Investigator. "Working for OSHA has given me countless opportunities to teach our constituents and the public why workplace safety and health should matter for everyone, but especially for populations that are not aware of their rights or afraid afraid to act on their rights."

Angel

I am OSHA: Angel - Assistant Area Director. "OSHA allows me to directly impact people's lives in a positive way, primarily in our workforce. It provides a gateway to help minimize or eliminate safety hazards in the workplace. As a safety professional for many years, I had challenges that affected my prompt reaction to safety issues such as budget, staffing, and leadership. OSHA enables us via the OSH Act to have a fast and long-lasting positive safety impact in each of our inspections. Saving the lives of America's workers that could be at risk due to improper safety practices or lack of safety programs is invaluable. Helping an employer be better brings me a lot of satisfaction."

Zernithea

I am OSHA: Zernithea - Safety Engineer. "I have a deep appreciate for being able to contribute to providing a safe workplace for America's workers. I have met so many workers in various industries that are passionate about the work they do. They deserve to be safe while providing for their families. I am proud that I can make that contribution to ensure their safety by answering their questions and providing tools they can utilize to remain safe." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Chris

I am OSHA: Chris - Deputy Regional Administrator. "I have been with the agency for over 30 years in various roles from Compliance Officer to Deputy Regional Administrator. I come to work each day because I know the difference that OSHA can make in the lives of America's workers. I have conducted inspections in workplaces where the only safety and health professional they have ever seen was myself. There is no better feeling than knowing that your work removed an employee from harm's way. If you are looking for a career where you can make a positive difference in others' working lives every day, I encourage you to come work for OSHA. Our job is not easy, but it is rewarding."

Keysha

I am OSHA: Keysha - Industrial Hygienist. "I'm passionate about working for OSHA because I'm making a positive impact on the worker's life. There's no more satisfaction than saving lives." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Billie

I am OSHA: Billie - Deputy Regional Administrator. "I realized being a doctor was not for me near the end of my college days studying biomedical engineering. Thankfully, I was introduced to industrial hygiene, which prompted me to pursue a master's degree in public health. For the first time, I embraced the idea of being able to prevent people from getting sick in the first place and joined OSHA as a safety engineer. Over the years, I've been promoted, and now I'm a Deputy Regional Administrator. Without OSHA rules and regulations, many employees would have no protection at all. It's easy to look at statistics to see if we're meeting all the metrics, but what is impossible to quantify are the lives saved." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Young

I am OSHA: Young - Director, Emergency Management and Preparedness. "Our team helps OSHA fulfill its mission during emergency response and recovery operations for natural and man-made disasters and emerging infectious diseases. OSHA means representation and honor. I am an Asian American who grew up in a hard-working family with deep-rooted immigrant (Korean American) working values and culture. Through my work over the years at OSHA, I've realized that I am a voice for the Asian American and Pacific Islander worker and business community. AAPIs deserve healthy and safe working environments, just as all workers do, and I will continue to serve to strengthen those protections." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Mary

I am OSHA: Mary - Whistleblower Investigator. "As an investigator, I visited a site to interview an employer and their employees regarding a case. I did not know, but this site was a participant of one of the agency's safety and health recognition programs. Every worker I spoke with said they loved working there because it was so safe and they helped contribute. After being at other worksites where there have been fatalities and accidents, seeing the worst of the worst, I cried with happiness that everyone worked together to provide a safe workplace. I realized at that point employers CAN make a difference." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Juan

I am OSHA: Juan - OSHA Instructor. "I am the voice of caution for our nation's workforce. I did an accident investigation where a worker on a temporary visa died of heat stress in our Illinois cornfields. In the most literal sense, he worked himself to death, tending to our crops. He and the company that hired him lacked appropriate training. Experiences like these have renewed my passion for what I do and reemphasized why health and safety on the job are so important." OSHA osha.gov/careers

Bridget

I am OSHA: Bridget - Information Specialist. "I am OSHA - every day, all day! Safety has been a fundamental part of my life as the daughter, sister, niece, cousin, aunt, and mother to family of ironworkers. Through the teachings of my father, I learned at a very young age that safety is not a choice but a way of thinking. For the past 12 years, it's been natural for me to extend my knowledge beyond my workday to my family, friends, and neighbors." OSHA osha.gov/careers
