Located at the western end of Lake Erie in northwestern Ohio, Toledo was founded by United States citizens in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River. Originally incorporated in Michigan, the city was re-established in 1837, after conclusion of the Toledo War, when it was incorporated in Ohio. Toledo grew quickly, due to it’s geographic position on the railway line between New York City and Chicago. It also benefited from the construction of the Miami and Erie Canal. In the modern era, the city has become a city with a distinctive art community, auto assembly businesses, education, healthcare, and local sports teams. Toledo’s glass industry earned it the nickname, “The Glass City”.
As in other states, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates worker safety in the state of Ohio. While Ohio does not have it’s own state plan certified by OSHA, employers are bound by the OSH Act of 1970. The General Duty Clause of that act specifies that all businesses, whether public or private. must provide for a safe and healthy workplace for it’s employees.

The Department of Labor Issues an OSHA Wallet Card that is valid in all 50 states. Supervisors may take additional training online or on-site. The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Training Course is available for foremen, supervisors and executives.
