Statement by Loren Sweatt
Acting Assistant Secretary
Occupational Safety and Health Administration


The U.S. Department of Labor is committed to ensuring that American jobs are safe jobs.

Today is a day to remember that since 1971, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been working to help make workplaces safer. OSHA has aided in the creation of a safe culture for American workplaces because every worker in America should return home at the end of each and every workday, safe and unharmed.

Workplace safety is everyone’s business, and must be everyone’s priority. Safety must start on day one and be a continuous process. OSHA will continue to work with its partners across the country – employers, workers, trade associations, labor unions, and safety and health professionals – to ensure that every workplace is safe and healthful.

Together, we can continue to protect the health and safety path that leads to safe, family-sustaining career opportunities.
