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.
Employees must know how to respond properly when an accident or injury occurs in the workplace. Exposure to bloodborne pathogens is a serious concern in responding to injury because these microorganisms can cause disease. Understanding and following basic first aid and emergency action steps helps to minimize threats to life and health.
