Strategic Goal 3
Quality Workplaces
Foster Quality Workplaces that are Safe, Healthy, and Fair

The Department is committed to fostering workplaces that are safe, healthy, and fair. To meet this objective, the Department is dedicated to increasing the representation, advancement, and promotion of women, people of color, veterans, and people with disabilities in the workplace; providing access to quality child care for working families; and improving worker safety and health. As today's workplace is increasingly affected by global markets, DOL will also address core international labor standards and child labor issues.
