Employee and environment safety and health are an essential part of a business’s responsibilities even as it goes about its activities of delivering products and services. To provide businesses with a direction, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 provides guidelines that companies must comply with to proactively prevent injuries and also respond to incidents with appropriate measures.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 states that employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. This ideology is implemented by enforcing standards, training, and assistance. OSHA’s commitment to workplace safety grants the committee jurisdiction over seven million worksites. OSHA guidelines have evolved over the years to meet the changing dynamics of the work environment. Employers, including small business owners, are mandated to implement OSHA guidelines in their organizations. As part of the United States Department of Labor, OSHA is focused on protecting the workforce’s safety and health while also providing training, outreach, education, and assistance.
