Safety and Health
National Summary
Protecting the safety and health of employees is a highly regulated function for all employers. By incorporating safety and health programs into core business processes, employers can significantly reduce the cost and frequency of penalties for safety and health rule violations, medical bills, and workers’ compensation premiums.
In conjunction with complying with workplace safety and health rules, employers must also protect the rights and well-being of employees under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other statutes related to the rights of employees to a safe and healthful workplace.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed voluntary guidelines for the establishment of formal safety and health programs at general and marine industry workplaces to monitor company safety and health performance, as well as to comply with OSHA and other regulatory standards.
