Occupational Safety & Health Solutions
Navigating The Sea Of Regulations And Hidden Risks
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) states that all U.S. employers are required to provide a work environment that is “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm.”
OSHA has written specific standards supporting this “general duty” mandate, as well as a separate but similar mandate for construction operations. Both require employers to a obey a host of regulations to ensure strict compliance.
However, Nevada is one of approximately 25 states that also operates its own occupational safety and health program. So beyond enforcing federal OSHA standards, the Nevada OSHA has promulgated its own safety regulations that Nevada employers must be aware of and abide by.
