Workplace Safety & Health

HomeEmployer/Employee IssuesWorkplace Safety & Health

Workplace Safety & Health conditions in most private industries are regulated by OSHA or OSHA-approved state programs,

which also cover public sector employers.

OSHA

The Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act is administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

 

Employers covered by the OSH Act must comply with the regulations and the safety and health standards promulgated by OSHA.

Employers also have a general duty under the OSH Act to provide their employees with work and

a workplace free from recognized, serious hazards.

OSHA enforces the Act through workplace inspections and investigations.

Compliance assistance and other cooperative programs are also available.
