OSHA Focusing on the Future
OSHA's new five-year Strategic Management Plan sets goals and strategies to build on our base of success and enhance our work for the future. The agency's vision is that "Every employer and employee in the nation recognizes that safety and health adds value to the American businesses, workplaces, and workers's lives."
Setting New Goals:
Faced with both new challenges and persistent safety and health issues, OSHA is committed to focusing its resources on achieving three overarching goals:
- Reduce occupational hazards through direct intervention
- Promote a safety and health culture through compliance assistance, cooperative programs and strong leadership; and
- Maximize OSHA's effectiveness and efficiency by strengthening its capabilities and infrastructure.
