What is OSHA?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labour.
The OSH Act covers most private sector employers and their workers, in addition to some public sector employers and workers in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority. Those jurisdictions include the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Wake Island, Johnston Island, and the Outer Continental Shelf Lands as defined in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act.
The use and abuse of drugs, alcohol, and other substances create serious problems inside and outside of the workplace. The National Institute for Drug and Alcohol Abuse identifies these issues as the most preventable cause of accidents in the workplace. Employees can help prevent incidents by learning to recognize the signs of use and properly reporting and documenting these instances.
