Ensuring Safety on a Construction Site
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a branch of the US Department of Labor responsible for making sure that work conditions are safe for employees. OSHA has a set of standards that employers must follow so that the work environment is safe and free from hazards and that employees are properly trained to reduce the risk of accidents. The following are steps employers should take to protect their employees from accidents:
- Incorporate Safety into the Work Culture
- Education Employees of Possible Hazards
- Provide a Thorough Safety Training
- Enforce a System of Documentation
- Provide the Proper Protective Equipment
- Communicate Regularly to Employees
- Have a Foreman Onsite Who Can Enforce Safety
Under OSHA, employees have a right to work in an environment that keeps them safe from experiencing severe harm. They also can make a confidential complaint to OSHA, file a complaint if they have experienced retaliation, receive records of work-related injuries, and more. When an employer follows the OSHA expectations, they reduce the risk of accidents occurring in the workplace.
