The Iowa Division of Labor is responsible for the enforcement of programs designed to protect the safety, health and economic security of all Iowans.  Our programs protect people who ride on elevators, escalators and amusement rides.  We protect anyone who enters a building with an asbestos abatement project or a public building with a boiler. We protect employees from dangers in the workplace and protect employees' rights to be paid wages.  We protect Iowa's children from dangers in workplaces and enhance their educational experiences.
