Regulations set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) are meant to keep workers in New York safe from employer negligence and unsafe working conditions. This is critical protection for the workers that make up the backbone of the U.S. economy. Unfortunately, many companies every year put their employees at risk of injury by violating OHSA regulations. The most common OSHA violations include citations involving:
- Fall protection
- Hazard communication
- Respiratory protection
All workers should be protected from preventable hazards. This means that employers need to follow all OHSA regulations, or they leave themselves vulnerable to legal action.
