Since 1975 our mission has been “the prevention of injury, disease and death on the job through information, education, technical assistance and political action.”

PhilaPOSH is the only organization in the Greater Philadelphia Area that makes worker safety and health the top priority. We are not a government agency and our strength depends on our members.

In 1975 concerned union members, workers, legal and health professionals founded PhilaPOSH. We are an independent organization which works closely with the Pennsylvania State AFL-CIO, the Industrial Union Council of New Jersey, The Work Environment Council, County Councils and other occupational safety and health groups across the nation and Canada to educate union members, safety representatives and the general public on a wide variety of job health and safety topics, including Workmen’s Compensation, recognition and control of hazards, OSHA and other laws, legal issues, and much more.
