What is Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)?

In relation to commodities like hazardous goods or heavy equipment, OSHA standards serve to help make sure that workers follow accepted best practices and take necessary safety precautions to avoid injury or damage. 

One way that OSHA affects the shipping of hazardous materials, in particular, is through the Hazard Communication Standard. When it comes to the transportation of hazardous materials, OSHA has limited jurisdiction of over-the-road transport.
