The federal workplace safety and health laws were designed to
“assure, as far as possible, every working man and woman in the nation safe
working conditions and to preserve our human resources.” The Occupational
Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administrates and enforces these laws.
The laws set out uniform national standards for workplace safety and health
practices throughout the country. There are rules for hazard assessments,
employee safety and health, hazard communication, recordkeeping, OSHA inspections,
employee rights, penalties, and most frequent OSHA violations.
