OSHA – Don’t get caught off-guard – Know your responsibilities

The Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed December 29, 1970. This Act requires employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to their employees.

Protecting workers from injury and illness makes good business sense. Expenses from injuries and illness can be more expensive than people realize and will add up quickly. Employees in a safe work environment will have increased productivity and higher morale.

OSHA requires that certain notices be posted in a conspicuous place such as a break room for companies with 10 or more employees. For a complete list of postings and other helpful information visit: http://www.osha.com/
