  1. I am doing a policy proposal paper and I used a fact sheet from OSHA. How do I cite and reference a fact sheet without an author?

  2. Actually, you would list OSHA as the author. So, it would be:
    Occupational Safety & Health Administration. (year). Title of handbook. Retrieved from http://www.osha.gov/CompleteURL
