Q: What kinds of companies are required to comply with the Occupational Safety & Health Act?  

The term "employer" for the purposes of the OSH Act is defined as a person engaged in a business affecting commerce who has employees but does not include the United States, or any State or political subdivision of a State. The coverage of the act is extensive since there are few employers who do not affect commerce.
