Why OSHA

Why OSHA
No one can count how much OSHA has done towards the safety of workers at working place. OSHA safety training alone has awakened the employers about the safety and health and now all the workers are eager to know about the safety measures and they have got right for safety and health federally.

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is the main federal agency of United States Department of Labor. Congress created it under the Occupational Safety and Health Act and President Richard M. Nixon signed it on December 29, 1970. Its mission comes with a great objectivity to prevent the workers from work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths. OSHA has introduced OSHA standard for workplace safety and health. Like OSHA,

NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) was also created by OSHA act though it is not a part of United States Department of Labor.

The Standard of OSHA contains reasonable, protective practices, and process of job. OSHA ensures if these facilities are provided by the employers to their employees or not. OSHA wants the employees should know all about the OSHA functions and regulations and the standard set for them. For these reasons OSHA has conducted safety training for the workers where they are taught the preventive measures to be taken while working with construction and general industries and also the give lessons how to maintain a healthy working environment. If the working site is not good and healthy then they can complain and leave such kind of working sites. OSHA introduces OSHA Inspections to inspect the working site, equipment used by the workers whether they are protective or not. OSHA requires the employees to be get informed about the regulations which are applicable for their conduct and actions.

Now see, how OSHA has been working towards the welfare of the workers and strives to make a good environment where safety and health of the workers is possible.
