A Model for Research on Training Effectiveness

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Public Law 91-596) was enacted to assure, so far as possible, safe and healthful working conditions for every working man and woman in the Nation. The Act mandated improved research, regulation, and training aimed at reducing the incidence of occupational injury and illness. To achieve these goals, provisions were made for two distinct Federal agencies: the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA develops and promulgates safety and health regulations in the workplace. NIOSH serves the occupational safety and health research needs of the Federal government and the public. Both agencies are charged with delivering occupational safety and health training.
