Employer Responsibility: Safe Working Environment
Since 1971, OSHA has worked with employers and employees alike to promote increased safety in the workplace.
Some pieces of regulations enforced by OSHA include:
- Increased use of guards to cover machinery parts;
- Efforts to keep healthcare workers from being exposed;
- Increased safety training for workers throughout the states; and
- Mandatory usage of protective equipment when handling chemicals.
Through its efforts, the rate of workplace accidents has severely decreased; however, that does not mean that the problem has disappeared. In fact, nearly four million occupational injuries and illnesses were reported in 2007, with half requiring the victim to take several days off of work.
