Providing a Safe Workplace

OSHA mandates impose three obligations on employers. First, they are required to furnish a workplace “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm” to employees. Second, they are required to comply with OSHA standards for workplace safety and health. Third, they are required to maintain records of employee injuries, deaths, illnesses, and exposures to toxic substances. They must also preserve all employee medical records.
