The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labour.
The OSH Act covers most private sector employers and their workers, in addition to some public sector employers and workers in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority. Those jurisdictions include the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Wake Island, Johnston Island, and the Outer Continental Shelf Lands as defined in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.
Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) exists in low levels all around us. However, the extraction and production of oil, natural gas, and minerals may cause NORM to accumulate in hazardous concentrations. Personnel must be aware of the hazards and proper safety procedures for detecting and working around hazardous concentrations of NORM.
