Every business regardless of its size….. must provide its employees with safe working conditions. And considering the range of potential hazards — from asbestos to slippery stairs to excessive noise …. that can be difficult for a small business.
So, why should everyone be so concerned about job safety and health?Because, each year approximately 6,000 employees in this country die from workplace injuries while another 50,000 die from illnesses caused by exposure to workplace hazards. In addition, 6 million workers suffer non-fatal workplace injuries at an annual cost to U.S. businesses of more than $125 billion dollars.
Standards and rules for safe working conditions…. tools, equipment, facilities and processes are set by the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA standards apply to every private employer with one or more employees…. except for those in industries covered by other federal job safety legislation.
Today…. roughly 93 million employees across the country are protected by state and federal OSHA programs. But even with adequate safety measures, accidents do happen.
