The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) provides for the setting of federal workplace health and safety standards by the Secretary of Labor, and their enforcement through inspections and penalties.
Many of the OSHA occupational safety regulations are very detailed. Failure to comply with these OSHA standards can not only result in penalties, but can also be used as evidence of negligence should an injury result.
OSHA also requires certain recordkeeping as to employee injuries.
