The United States Department of Labor, responsible for protecting the rights of about 10 million employers and 125 million employees, grants the responsibility to protect the health and safety of workers and working conditions to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

This agency is obligated to ensure that the working environments for both employees and employers adhere to the safety and health standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act. In this regard, employers have a duty to provide that both work and the workplace are free from any recognized, severe dangers.

Almost every employee in the nation will fall under OSHA’s jurisdiction, as this organization ensures that workplace laws are being followed strictly to protect the safety and health of all workers. There are, however, a few exceptions in which employees and employers would not be covered by the OHSA. Some of these exceptions include certain transportation workers, immediate family members of farm workers, miners, self-employed individuals, and many public employees.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was established in order to ensure that workers were not being killed or harmed while in the workplace. Under this act, laws were passed to make sure that working conditions are free of known dangers, as enforced by OSHA. In order to further ensure the safety and health of all workplace conditions throughout the country, OHSA provides various training programs, information, and assistance to workers and employers.

Workplace health and safety are two of the most important employee rights today. When an employee accepts a position within a company in the United States, they expect to be treated a certain way. Even more so, however, they should expect to be placed in the safest working conditions possible, free from any potential hazards or harm.

Phillips Law Group has seen a number of cases where employees were simply treated poorly based on the inadequate workplace health and safety conditions they were subjected to. If you or a loved one has suffered any injuries or harm due to inefficient workplace health and safety, contact a workplace health safety lawyer at our firm as soon as possible.

+ OHSA Workers Rights

Each employer is responsible to monitor the state of the workplace regularly, ensuring that all workplace health and safety standards are met, as laid out by the OSH Act.

The law protects employees from being subjected to unsafe or harmful conditions in the workplace that may put them in a compromising situation. Unfortunately, these laws are commonly broken by employers. In some cases, the employer may be unaware that any illegal activity is taking place. Regardless, employees must be well aware of their rights in order to protect them.

The following are worker’s rights under the OHS Act to:

  • Obtain information, as well as training, in regard to dangers, methods of prevention, and the OHSA standards that relate to their particular workplace
  • Confidentially file a complaint with the OHSA for workplace inspection
  • Access records of work-related injuries and/or illnesses that have taken place in their workplace
  • Obtain copies of medical records from the workplace
  • Speak with the inspector in private, as well as participate in the OSHA inspection
  • If the employer has retaliated in any way following the inspection request, the employee may file a complaint
  • Any whistleblower acts are protected under OHSA jurisdiction

In order for Arizona employees to protect themselves and their family members, they must be properly informed of OHSA workers’ rights. Without this knowledge, workers are unable to defend themselves against the wrongdoings of employers or bring attention to inadequate working conditions.

If you or a loved one has experienced any unhealthy or unsafe working conditions, you must not hesitate to request an inspection. For further legal guidance, Phillips Law Group is here for you. With years of experience in employee rights litigation, we know what it takes to win.

    Employer Responsibilities Under the OHSA

    The OHSA takes its role in government seriously, as it must ensure that all employers provide a safe and healthy working environment and workplace conditions for all employees.

    When any workplace health and safety problem emerges, it is up to the employer to take control and manage the situation. In this regard, the employer must make immediate changes to current conditions in order to regain the health and safety standard set by the OHSA.

    Employers are responsible for the following elements of workplace conditions and standards:

    • Training employees using both vocabulary and language that is understood
    • Ensure that all employees are informed of any hazards via either labels, training, color-coded systems, alarms, chemical information data sheets, and any other methods that increase safety
    • Consistently perform tests to verify that OSHA standards are being complied with
    • All work-related injuries and illnesses must be recorded accurately and kept on record
    • Provide the OHSA standard medical tests, including hearing tests
    • Display OSHA citations, as well as any injuries and illness data, in a place where all workers can see
    • Send notification to OHSA with 8 hours of any kind of workplace fatality or hospitalization of three or more workers
    • Display the official OHSA posters prominently, and ensure that all workers can easily see the rights and responsibilities described in the OHS Act

    If you or a loved one believes that an employer has neglected to adhere to any OHSA standards, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries that you have suffered in the workplace. Contact our employee rights attorneys immediately for a no-obligation consultation.
