Safety and Health
Several DOL agencies and programs focus on ensuring safe and healthy work environments for the nation's workers.
DOL's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) works to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women. DOL's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) protects the health and safety of workers in the nation's mines.
DOL's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) oversees the Fair Labor Standards Act's (FLSA) child labor provisions, which specify the jobs young workers may perform and the jobs that are designated as hazardous for them to perform. WHD also administers the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and DOL's Employment Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) administers standards for employer-provided group health benefits plans.
