OSHA Registration

The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) is a tool for managing workplace safety and health by ensuring that all employers in the country put in place structures and systems that ensure workplace safety and health are protected.

In recent years there has been an increase in the number of employers applying for checks or safety and health training in their workplaces. This is an important indicator of success. The OSHA Institute focuses on educating rather than punishing to ensure that employers are held accountable.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act of 2003 established the Occupational Health and Safety Authority (OSHA). The act’s principal goal is to protect those who aren’t at work from threats to their health and safety that arise from or are related to the actions of people who are at work, as well as to address related issues.
