Are you one of those concerned about health and safety on the job? You’re not alone. Across the length and breadth of the US, the millions of workers who are employed in the various sectors, be it manufacturing or services, or technological or agricultural, are prone to injury at the workplace. Not one kind of job or working condition or employment or workplace is free from the potential to cause injuries or illnesses. This is why there is every reason to be concerned about health and safety on the job.

OSHA has been primarily enacted with the purpose of giving employees rights to a safe workplace. Why every employee needs to be concerned about health and safety on the job is best answered by these disconcerting statistics:

If an employer is seen to be violating the provisions of OSHA or if the employee feels that there is some form of potential danger to her physical wellbeing at the workplace; she has the right to complain to OSHA without fear of being retaliated against.

A host of rights to assuage concerns about health and safety on the jobAmong the main features of OSHA is that it requires the employer to publish employee rights about their safety at the workplace. This enables them to allay concerns about health and safety on the job, as they have a ready reference to which they can go back in case of a doubt about the implementation aspects of any provision of OSHA. Employees who are concerned about health and safety on the job have the following rights:
