The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970 is a piece of legislation that established a set of standards which employers are required to meet so that their employees are provided with healthy and safe working conditions. If the job offered by an employer involves employee interaction with any hazards that might cause some kind of affliction or injury, the employer is legally obligated to provide his or her workers with adequate training and equipment to be as safe as possible. Furthermore, employers must inform their workers of the hazardous nature of any materials or activities and their associated risks.
