OSHA Reports At Least 180 Million Page Views in FY 2008

According to OSHA, more than 110 million visitor sessions from the public sought potentially life-saving safety and health information from its Web site this fiscal year. Visitors to www.osha.gov viewed more than 180 million pages of occupational safety and health resources during the period, the agency said, adding that members of the public frequently use the site to access OSHA standards, in addition to pages on safety and health topics such as bloodborne pathogens, respiratory protection, personal protective equipment, and fall protection.

Since the site went online in 1995, its traffic has consistently increased by 12 percent to 15 percent annually, reaching more than 110 million visitor sessions in Fiscal 2008, the agency says. According to Diane Childress, OSHA Webmaster, "We are continually working to improve the site to better serve all of the Agency's customers. Feedback or suggestions for improving the site are always appreciated."

In addition to OSHA standards, the Web site allows users to access inspection records, Safety and Health Information Bulletins, and compliance assistance information including eTools, QuickCards, and fact sheets, as well as guidance documents and other resources, many of which are available in Spanish. The site also offers information on how to take advantage of OSHA's cooperative programs and On-Site Consultation.

"OSHA's Web site is one of the most valuable public outreach tools we have," said Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "It provides employers and employees with all the information they need to create and maintain healthful and safe workplaces."
