OSHA Safety

OSHA’s Top 10 Employer Responsibilities


It does not matter if employees are working in an office or in a trench, employers have a responsibility to provide workers with a safe place to work. When the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act was established in 1970, the regulations included employer responsibilities. Start the New Year off right by ensuring that the CEO and managers at all levels within a company know and understand what these responsibilities are.

Safety Off the Job

Understanding the Importance of Off-the-Job Safety


Each year, the number of workers killed in off-the-job accidents exceeds the number killed at work by a multiple of more than 10. And as many as 15 million workers are injured off-the-job each year. This means your employees have a greater chance of being injured or killed at home or during leisure activities than while at work.

Report Safety Near Misses

Report Near-Misses

Selecting Safe Subcontractors


Among the most important issues to consider when selecting subcontractors is the subcontractor’s commitment to safety. Choosing a subcontractor with a poor safety record can lead to huge problems for the controlling contractor.
