Workplace safety is a critically important area of the law for both employers and employees. Federal, state, and local laws govern workplace safety. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) regulations are the most well-known workplace safety rules. However, employers and employees should be aware of and compliant with any other safety regulations that may apply to their particular business under state and local law.
Employers should contact an attorney if they have any concern or doubt that they are not compliant with workplace safety regulations. It is imperative that employers are compliant with workplace safety and that they communicate safety to their employees.
If you are an employee and suspect that your employer is violating workplace safety regulations, you should contact a lawyer immediately to protect your rights.
