How to Contact OSHA Offices

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) National Headquarters is located in Washington DC. There are also 10 Regional Offices located around the country; they primarily manage the overall administration of OSHA’s area offices located within their multi-state regions. However, most federal OSHA compliance safety and health inspectors typically work out of one of the numerous OSHA Area Offices located throughout the country and US territories; this is typically the OSHA personnel employers or employees deal with on a face-to-face basis.

The various approved State Plan programs also have a State Plan OSHA office (or offices) located within their state or territory.

Workers also have the right to file a complaint with OSHA to report unsafe or unhealthful conditions in their workplace. However, the employee must typically complete and submit a form to OSHA if they want to formally request an inspection of the workplace. The employee can make a request for OSHA to keep the complaint anonymous.

OSHA also has a toll-free number that employers or employees may call for emergencies and to get general information, it is 1-800-321-OSHA (6742).
