When working in various industries such as construction or maintenance, there are certain safety guidelines to adhere to to minimize falling incidents or to know what to do if that situation occurs. These regulations come from The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) are under the Department of Labor and work with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) which is under the Center for Disease Control. Together, these departments track trends in occupational accidents/injuries and create standards to prevent incidents from occurring again.
Thanks to these OSHA guidelines, you can help make your workplace a much safer place by making sure your employees adhere to them.
