OSHA maintains more than 70 field offices that function as full-service centers offering a variety of safety-related information and assistance. This may include the dissemination of printed material, audiovisual aids on workplace hazards, lecturers available to speak to employees, and technical assistance.
OSHA also maintains and operates its Training Institute in Des Plaines, Illinois, where basic and advanced training in federal and state OSHA compliance is offered, and compliance officers, state consultants, and other agency personnel are certified. OSHA also provides funds and grants to organizations for conducting workplace training and education. It submits an annual report identifying areas of unmet needs and solicits grant proposals to address those needs.
