Workplace Safety

There are various federal, state, and local rules and regulations that businesses are required to abide by. Federal guidelines for workplace safety and health are established and enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Employers should be familiar with these guidelines, as well as the procedures for handling workers' compensation claims.
