Critical component of OSHA workplace safety is reporting. Employers in highly hazardous industries are mandated to keep records of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. OSHA’s record-keeping regulations are based on the framework from the national occupational safety and health record-keeping system. OSHA adheres to a structured reporting requirement that catalogs all incidents in the organization.
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. Organisations that implement OSHA safety standards can help 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
