Employees are one of the most crucial assets of any business irrespective of their size and industry. It is, therefore, essential to safeguard your workforce from occupational hazards, including accidents and illnesses. Apart from reducing employee productivity, such incidents often result in disruption of normal business operations. Consequently, your company incurs significant losses and has to provide suitable compensation to affected employees.
It’s every organization’s duty to keep their workplace safe for their employees. However, there are lots of regulations that you need to follow to accomplish this especially from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which is the regulatory body that looks into these compliances.
