OSHA Workplace Safety Standards & Regulations

Employers, whatever their size, are responsible for the safety and health of their employees at the workplace. While this is mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, those employers who implement safety practices as a moral responsibility benefit from greater employee loyalty and total employee involvement. They can avoid losses due to compensations and litigation. Needless to say, injuries or death in the workplace can damage the reputation of the business. There is also the loss incurred due to lost working hours and days, and if there is a replacement required, then the recruitment and training can add to the costs.

Helping employers avoid these unwanted scenarios are the guidelines provided by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), a division under the United States Department of Labor with jurisdiction in over seven million sites.
