Des Moines Skyline at Night

Our Mission

The Iowa Division of Labor and Iowa OSHA protect the safety, health and economic security of Iowans. Our programs protect people who ride on elevators, escalators and amusement rides. We protect the people who are in a building with a boiler or a pressure vessel, or an asbestos abatement project. We protect employees from dangers in the workplace and protect the right of an employee to be paid. We protect Iowa's children from dangers in workplaces, and limit their hours of work so they can focus on education.
