Under OSHA law, employees can file a complaint and request an inspection if they feel their workplace is unsafe. It is the employer’s duty to provide employees with a safe and healthy work environment. This means ensuring the workplace is free of hazards, providing the proper tools and protective equipment, and reporting incidents such as injuries and fatalities that have occurred.
Preventing Workplace Accidents and Liabilities
Putting measures in place to prevent workplace accidents starts with an awareness of the standards and regulations set forth by OSHA. Employers are legally required to comply or else face costly penalties. If you are unaware of OSHA safety requirements, consulting with a Texas OSHA lawyer is highly recommended. Prevention includes eliminating hazards, conducting safety audits, and enforcing safety rules and procedures.
