It is the mission of the Illinois Department of Labor, Division of Occupational Safety and Health (IL OSHA) to ensure safe and healthy working conditions by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education, and assistance to employers and employees throughout Illinois.
Occupational safety and health standards enforcement for employers in Illinois is a shared responsibility between the U.S. Department of Labor (federal OSHA) and the Illinois Department of Labor (IL OSHA).
Federal OSHA, an Administration under the U.S. Department of Labor, covers all private sector workplaces; federal agencies; maritime employers; military facilities; Native American sovereignty workplaces; and the United States Postal Service.
IL OSHA, a Division of the Illinois Department of Labor, covers all state and local government workplaces. Illinois operates as a state-plan state and IL OSHA must adopt standards that are at least as effective as federal OSHA standards.
