During the Trump administration, some were critical of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for taking a too-relaxed approach to enforcement.

Safety is a complex process with countless approaches, but all of them should take advantage of a few core safety tips that can save lives and gear around the workplace. Thousands of workplace accidents occur every year. Some are minor and others are fatal, but many are preventable.
In addition to being a leading resource for occupational safety and health conferences, industry standards, education courses and networking opportunities, the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) is the place to go for books and technical publications that cover every facet of workplace safety.
