Workplace Health Safety
The United States Department of Labor, responsible for protecting the rights of about 10 million employers and 125 million employees, grants the responsibility to protect the health and safety of workers and working conditions to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
This agency is obligated to ensure that the working environments for both employees and employers adhere to the safety and health standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act. In this regard, employers have a duty to provide that both work and the workplace are free from any recognized, severe dangers.
Almost every employee in the nation will fall under OSHA’s jurisdiction, as this organization ensures that workplace laws are being followed strictly to protect the safety and health of all workers. There are, however, a few exceptions in which employees and employers would not be covered by the OHSA. Some of these exceptions include certain transportation workers, immediate family members of farm workers, miners, self-employed individuals, and many public employees.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was established in order to ensure that workers were not being killed or harmed while in the workplace. Under this act, laws were passed to make sure that working conditions are free of known dangers, as enforced by OSHA. In order to further ensure the safety and health of all workplace conditions throughout the country, OHSA provides various training programs, information, and assistance to workers and employers.
Workplace health and safety are two of the most important employee rights today. When an employee accepts a position within a company in the United States, they expect to be treated a certain way. Even more so, however, they should expect to be placed in the safest working conditions possible, free from any potential hazards or harm.
Phillips Law Group has seen a number of cases where employees were simply treated poorly based on the inadequate workplace health and safety conditions they were subjected to. If you or a loved one has suffered any injuries or harm due to inefficient workplace health and safety, contact a workplace health safety lawyer at our firm as soon as possible.

I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
