Make Employee Safety a #1 Priority.

According to the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA), Workers have the right to work in conditions that do not pose a serious risk to their health and safety, and that do not expose them to undue or serious harm. 

Employers MUST:

Workplace-Safety1

  • Employers must find and correct any known safety and health problems in the work environment.
  • try to eliminate potential hazards by making changes in working conditions. 
  • Switching to safer chemicals, or use an adequate ventilation system to clean the air.
  • Inform employees about hazards through training, labels, alarms, color-coded systems, chemical information sheets and other methods.
  • Keep accurate records of work-related injuries and illnesses.
  • Perform tests in the workplace, such as air sampling required by some OSHA standards.
  • Provide hearing exams or other medical tests required by OSHA standards.
  • Post OSHA citations, injury and illness data, and the OSHA poster in the workplace where workers will see them.
  • Notify OSHA within 8 hours of a workplace incident in which there is a death or when three or more workers go to a hospital.
  • Not discriminate or retaliate against a worker for using their rights under the law.
