The Ultimate Guide to OSHA Compliance & Workplace Safety
All employers have the responsibility to protect the safety and health of their employees at the workplace. Mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Act(OSHA) of 1970, employers with a moral responsibility benefit from greater employee loyalty and total employee involvement. They can avoid losses due to compensations and litigation such as injuries or death in the workplace, loss due to lost working hours and days, and prevent added costs from recruitment and training in case of mishaps.
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), a division under the United States Department of Labor helps employers avoid these unwanted scenarios by being focused on protecting the workforce’s safety and health while also providing training, outreach, education, and assistance to employers. OSHA has jurisdiction over approximately 8 million employers and 130 million workers, and only has about 2,000 inspectors.
