Work Injuries and Regulations

Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 9th, 2010

There are regulations designed to keep workplaces and the people who work in them safe. These are mostly administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). There are also specialty branches of this regulatory agency, such as the branch that works with mine safety. State regulations come into play at most worksites, as well. Employers have to follow these rules and regulations to keep their employees safe and, when they don’t comply, injuries sometimes result. In some cases, people are killed.
