Since its creation, work-related deaths have decreased by over 65 percent while injuries and illnesses have lessened by 67 percent.OSHA covers most private sector employers and employees, as well as some employees in the public sector. Self-employed workers, family members of farm employers and workers in fields regulated by other agencies are generally not covered.
