Safe and Healthy Workplaces
What responsibilities do the employer and the employee have in making sure the workplace is safe and healthy?
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) was designed to set forth a standard that would provide for the safety and health of employees while on the job. Employers are required to provide a place of employment free from occupational hazards. Employees must follow the rules and regulations established to promote their safety and use equipment designed to ensure their safety. Suppose a fellow employee working near you ignored safety regulations and was injured. Others who witnessed this act have decided to say that the employee did not ignore the safety rules in order for him to receive benefits. Cite one or more Internet sources in your initial response.
Should you report him to your supervisor and provide information that may incriminate the injured worker and cause him to lose benefits?
