OSHA: An Introduction

No losses are acceptable when it comes to workplace injuries or fatalities, so the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established to develop and enforce job safety and health standards. Introduce your employees to this agency and ensure that they gain a deeper understanding of its goals. This program explains OSHA standards, the inspection process, citations and penalties and your responsibilities as an employer.
