Introduction to OSHA

Introduction to OSHA$20.00 USDMore than 90 million Americans spend their days on the job. They are our most valuable national resource. Yet, until 1970, no uniform and comprehensive provisions existed for their protection against workplace safety and health hazards. In 1970, Congress considered annual figures such as these: * Job-related accidents accounted for more than 14,000 worker deaths;  * Nearly 21/2 million workers were disabled; * Ten times as many person-days were lost from job-related disabilities as from strikes; and * Estimated new cases of occupational diseases totaled 300,000.  In terms of lost production and wages, medical expenses and disability compensation, the burden on the nation's commerce was staggering. Human cost was beyond calculation. Therefore, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) of 1970 was passed by a bipartisan Congress "...to assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions and to preserve our human resources."  This training session will look at what OSHA is, why it was created, what areas it covers, and what protections it provides the worker.
