We will soon celebrate Labor Day to honor all of the workers who faced dangerous working conditions centuries ago, but many employees still face illegal risks every day.
Despite legal protections and federal laws in place, many current employees still suffer from unsafe workplaces.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed in 1970 to prevent workers from being injured at work. Every employee, no matter what industry you are in, is entitled to a safe work environment where your long-term health is protected on a daily basis.
In addition to this federal law, Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation defines clearly what each Ohio employee is entitled to and what every Ohio business must provide for their workers.
Whether you are in the construction, manufacturing or trade industry, daily exposures to new threats can cause severe injury.
