Nearly 50 years ago, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed with the goal of helping workers return home safe and sound. While employers have made significant strides since then, there is still plenty of room for improvement, and OSHA auditors are keeping a close eye on companies’ adherence to safety regulations.
Legal obligations aside, it’s in every employer’s best interest to provide the safest possible workplace to their employees. Safer workers are happier and more productive, and reducing incidents leads to lower costs across the board.
