Nearly 3.0 million serious workplace injuries and illnesses were reported by private industry employers in 2012.
OSHA Makes a Difference
Worker deaths in America are down--on average, from about 38 worker deaths a day in 1970 to 12 a day in 2013. Worker injuries and illnesses are down from 10.9 incidents per 100 workers in 1972 to 3.0 per 100 in 2012. OSHA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor. OSHA’s responsibility is to improve worker safety and health protection. On December 29, 1970, President Nixon signed the OSH Act. This Act created OSHA, the agency, which formally came into being on April 28, 1971.
The mission of OSHA is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Some of the things OSHA does to carry out its mission are:
- Developing job safety and health standards and enforcing them through worksite inspections.
- Providing training programs to increase knowledge about occupational safety and health
What Rights Do You Have Under OSHA?
You have the right to a safe and healthful workplace, know about hazardous chemicals, report injury to employer, complain or request hazard correction from employer, hazard exposure and medical records, file a complaint with OSHA, participate in an OSHA inspection, be free from retaliation for exercising safety and health rights.
