Workplace Safety

Employees have the right to a workplace that is reasonably free of safety and health hazards. A federal agency -- the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) -- sets and enforces national standards to ensure the safety and health of America's workers. If employees are injured on the job, employers are generally responsible for the medical costs associated with the injury, and may have to pay fines if the workplace did not comply with OSHA standards.
