Google Scholar. OSHA has developed a number of compliance assistance resources tailored to specific industries, including those listed below. These resources include eTools and Safety and Health Topics pages.

To find additional compliance assistance resources for your industry, go to OSHA. OSHA’s inspection efforts have reduced worker injuries by a modest four percent.[2] Expanding OSHA’s enforcement power will not generate substantial improvements in worker safety. The Mine Safety and Health Administration, for example, performs more frequent inspections of mines and gives more substantial penalties than OSHA, yet the impact.
