Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that is free of dangers that could physically harm employees. OSHA does so by enforcing the standards developed under the Act; by assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to assure safe and healthful working conditions; by providing research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health.
Oftentimes, these workplace hazards only become evident after an injury has occurred. For Example, an unguarded machine part that spins at a high speed may not seen dangerous until someone’s clothing gets caught in it.
A knowledgeable attorney can assist you in your commitment to establishing up-to-date workplace safety and health regulations based on strong science, emphasizing fair enforcement of standards, and making prevention a priority. Let us provide you with an OSHA Safety and Compliance Review to prevent workplace injuries and other accidents.
