OSHA is the Occupational and Safety Health Administration. This organization was founded in 1970 and makes regulations regarding safety in the workplace. It applies to most workers with the exception of the self-employed, certain farm worker’s families, and workers with hazards that are governed by another federal agency. The purpose of OSHA is to prevent employees from being injured and/or killed. The employer has the responsibility to uphold certain safety measures. If they don’t, it is possible that you may be able to sue for negligence. There are some workplace accidents that happen more frequently than others.
