OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and it’s an agency of the United States Department of Labor. The mission of the administration is to “assure safe and healthful working conditions for men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance.” Employers are required to inform their employees of chemical hazards and other dangerous portions of the job, and they must properly train employees to make sure they know how to work safely around equipment and other potential hazards. Injuries must be accurately reported, and employers cannot discriminate against employees. These are just some of the strict yet important regulations that OSHA enforces.
