OSHA was founded to protect workers from the dangerous and sub-human condition that were prevalent in this country since it was founded:
“You have the right to a safe workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) was passed to prevent workers from being killed or seriously harmed at work. The law requires employers to provide their employees with working conditions that are free of known dangers. The Act created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sets and enforces protective workplace safety and health standards. OSHA also provides information, training and assistance to workers and employers. Workers may file a complaint to have OSHA inspect their workplace if they believe that their employer is not following OSHA standards or that there are serious hazards.”
Despite this, many companies and employers choose to willfully or negligently violate the rights of their workers to a safe, secure workplace which can cause a work accident injury.
