Times Are Changing and Safety is Not Standing Still
In the early 50’s, safety was barely a concept in the workplace. It wasn’t until 1970 that the country did an about-face and put safety in the spotlight with the passing of the Occupational Safety & Health Act and created OSHA.
Since the creation of OSHA, the number of injuries and deaths from work injuries has dropped dramatically — largely due to the knowledge and training that workers are receiving, a changing workplace culture of over 50 years and the fact that employers and workers are following Safety Rules and Regulations established by local and federal government.
Handing out hard hats, ear plugs and wearing safety glasses just does not cut it these days. New regulations, new interpretations of existing regulations, a changing workforce and technology advancements has placed more of the safe work responsibilities on the shoulder of you — the EMPLOYER.
