The Occupational Safety and Health Act influences you

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created The Occupational Health and Safety Administration for the purpose of reducing workplace hazards and to make sure workers stay safe at work everywhere in the United States. The standards and regulations put forth by OSHA cover all workplaces, from industrial to construction sites, making it possible for any employee in Maryland or other states to report dangerous working conditions.

Shining the safety spotlight, part 1: workplace report proposal

In recent years, our society has been learning hard lessons about what happens when there is too little transparency and not enough disclosure. Sex abuse cases involving priests, teachers and others are a case in point. For years, the problem was that organizations were too inclined to sweep problems under the rug rather than address them in a forthright way.

Super Pond, serious safety violations: OSHA's investigation

Military facilities in Maryland and other states are by no means immune from laws that regulate workplace safety. And so when a civilian technician died at the Aberdeen Test Center while conducting routine maintenance, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Investigation (OSHA) began an investigation.

Construction falls: OSHA cracks down on repeat violator

Roofers have dangerous jobs. By the very nature of their work, are particularly exposed to fall risks, as well as other types of construction accidents. Because they work in elevated settings, it is very important that they have all proper safety protections.

Lack of safety training can cause forklift injuries

Forklifts are the pack mules of modern industrial life. They are extremely useful machines for transporting and storing goods and packing materials in warehouses and industrial settings.

Construction site falls: federal rules and employer obligations

Injuries from workplace falls are a frequent type of workers' compensation claim. This is particularly true on construction sites, where scaffolding collapses and ladder falls are far too common. These falls can not only cause injuries; they can be deadly.

OSHA fines Maryland company over heat-related fatality

Autumn has (finally) arrived, with cooler temperatures. But the brutal heat of the summer has scarcely been forgotten - especially for the family of a man killed on the job in a heat-related incident last summer in Washington, D.C.

OSHA reminds workers of ways to stay safe in hot conditions

With summer just around the corner, those who work outdoors may already be looking for ways to stay cool when the sun beats down and the temperatures skyrocket. Even if you're accustomed to working in extreme conditions, it's important to take precautions to avoid heat exhaustion and other weather-related illnesses that could require a workers' compensation claim.
