NJ Lawyers | Middlesex County Employment Law | Fords
Fords | 08863The Occupational Safety & Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the Department of Labor, in order to reduce workplace hazards and implement safety and health programs. OSHA gives employees many rights and responsibilities, including the right to: request the OSHA area director to conduct an inspection if they believe hazardous conditions exist in the workplace, and have an authorized employee representative accompany the OSHA compliance officer during the inspection tour; be free of any discriminatory or retaliatory action taken by their employer as a result of any OSHA complaint; and more. Contact the OSHA attorneys at Maverick & Peters, LLC to get expertise advice regarding your OSHA situation. They are ready to provide assistance to individuals throughout Fords and New Jersey. OSHA imposes certain obligations for employers which include: provide work and a workplace free from recognized hazards; inform employees of OSHA safety and health standards that apply to their workplace; display in a prominent place the official OSHA poster that describes rights and responsibilities under the OSH Act; establish a written, comprehensive hazard communication program that includes provisions for such things as container labeling, material safety data sheets, and an employee training program; inform employees of the existence, location, and availability of their medical and exposure records when employees first begin employment and at least annually thereafter, and to provide these records upon request; and much more. The OSHA compliance inspector may conduct a comprehensive inspection of the entire workplace or a partial inspection limited to certain areas or aspects of the operation. Most businesses with 11 or more employees at any time during the calendar year must maintain records of occupational injuries and illnesses as they occur using OSHA Form 300, Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. Such recordkeeping is not required for employers in most retail trade, finance, insurance, real estate, and service industries. Employers must display OSHA's Safe and Healthful Workplaces poster (OSHA 3165 or the state equivalent) in a conspicuous location in your workplace where workers and prospective employees can see it. This publication informs employees of their rights and responsibilities under the OSH Act. OSHA conducts workplace inspections of businesses in federal jurisdictions, and OSHA-approved state plans are responsible for conducting workplace inspections of businesses under state jurisdiction to enforce their own standards that are 'at least as effective' as federal requirements.

Training courses in safety and health subjects are available to the private sector through the OSHA Training Institute at various education centers throughout the nation. For locations, visit OSHA's Office of Training and Education online at http://www.osha.gov/fso/ote/training/edcenters/index.html. OSHA's top priorities include reports of imminent dangers-accidents about to happen; fatalities or accidents serious enough to send three or more workers to the hospital; employee complaints; referrals from other government agencies; targeted inspections-such as the Site Specific Targeting Program (which focuses on employers that report high injury and illness rates); special emphasis programs that zero in on hazardous work (such as trenching or equipment such as mechanical power presses); and follow-up inspections. OSHA penalties range from $0 to $70,000, depending upon how likely the violation is to result in serious harm to workers. Serious violations may have penalties up to $7,000. Repeat and willful violations may have penalties as high as $70,000. Penalties may be discounted if an employer has a small number of employees, has demonstrated good faith, or has few or no previous violations. You have the right to a safe workplace. OSHA requires employers to provide a workplace that is free of serious recognized hazards and in compliance with OSHA Standards. Specifically, you have the right to: find out results of an OSHA inspection; get involved in any meetings or hearings to discuss any objections your employer has to OSHA's citations or to changes in abatement deadlines; file a formal appeal of deadlines for correction of hazards; file a discrimination complaint; request a research investigation on possible workplace health hazards; and much more.
