OSHA Budget

Feb. 8, 1999
Replacing hazardous materials with safer ones is an important strategy for protecting workers and the environment.

President Clinton has asked for $388.1 million an increase of $35.1 million for OSHA in fiscal year 2000.

The proposed budget includes:

  • $142.2 million for federal enforcement, up $8.3 million from 1999;
  • $57.8 million for federal compliance assistance, up $12.1 million;
  • $23.7 million for safety and health statistics, an increase of 8.5 million; and
  • $13.1 million for safety and health standards, up $800,000.

"The proposed increases reinforce our commitment to expand outreach and training for employers and employees, as well as strong enforcement targeted toward those workplaces we know have serious safety and health problems," said OSHA Administrator Charles Jeffress.
