Staying safe at work should not be a tight rope act. Under the
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employees are entitled to a safe working environment. Of course, with rights come responsibilities. How does an employee do their part towards ensuring their own safety?
According to the
Department of Labor, employees should:
1) Read posted OSHA materials.
2) Comply with all OSHA standards
3) Follow lawful employer safety and health rules.
4) Seek medical treatment promptly and report all work related injuries or illnesses to the employer
If your employer is violating safety standards, do not stand back and wait to suffer. Legislation is in place to protect both your health and safety. Contact the employment law professionals. The law firm of
