The 1970 OSH Act created OSHA, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. Its mission is to prevent accidents and injuries in the workplace and protect the health and safety of America's workers. It gives employees many rights related to job safety and creates uniform regulations that apply to workplaces across the country.
Employees need to understand why OSHA was created, what its mission is, and what rights they have under the OSH Act. They also need to know the responsibilities that their employers have to protect them on the job, and the role that they can play in creating safer workplaces for everyone. This program is designed to present basic information and OSHA and how it protects employee health and safety in the workplace.
