Description of Materials:

Introduction to OSHA Employee Booklet discusses the rights and responsibilities employees and employers have under OSHA and how the agency enforces its regulations. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 gave employees the right to a safe and healthy workplace.

To comply with OSHA requirements and build safety culture in the workplace, employers need to ensure that employees have a solid understanding of OSHA’s mission and how the agency protects them on the job. This booklet include information on OSHA and its mission, employees rights under OSHA, employers responsibilities under OSHA, how OSHA inspections are conducted, filing a complaint with OSHA, learning more about safety and health issues, and more.
