As part of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s 50th anniversary of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, the organization has announced that it has launched a webpage solely dedicated to this year’s celebration.

“The webpage highlights transformative workplace improvements over the past half century, from OSHA’s first standards and whistleblower protections, to assistance programs for small businesses, and the creation of training centers and education grants to help everyone understand and comply with the law,” the agency said in a press release.

The site—osha.gov/osha50—will be where OSHA will provide anniversary event details and information on other efforts.

As part of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s 50th anniversary of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, the organization has announced that it has launched a webpage solely dedicated to this year’s celebration.

OSHA, however, isn’t the only organization that is celebrating 50 years in 2020.

Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency announced its theme for its 50th anniversary titled: “EPA at 50: Progress for a Stronger Future,” which will reportedly be commemorated throughout the year and end in a celebration on Dec. 2.

“For 50 years, EPA employees and our many partners have worked together to fulfill the agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

“Today, Americans enjoy cleaner land, air and water than ever before. I look forward to celebrating the agency’s accomplishments throughout the year, and I hope that we can inspire the next generation of environmental leaders to continue building on our progress for the next 50 years.”

The EPA was established on Dec. 2, 1970, to create one agency responsible for federal environmental responsibilities that include research, monitoring, standard setting and enforcement activities “to ensure environmental protection while simultaneously safeguarding human health.”

“Since 1970, EPA has made significant progress in protecting the nation’s water, cleaning up our air and land and safeguarding human health,” the agency said.

“Historic milestones include setting the nation’s air quality standards to protect human health, regulating the quality of public drinking water, creating the Superfund program to clean up hazardous waste sites and protecting children from exposure to lead-based paint, to name a few.”

The EPA will be highlighting its efforts at epa.gov/50.
