How Is OSHA Involved in Your Construction Injury Claim?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency that sets and enforces safety standards in the workplace, including construction sites. Since it was created under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, OSHA has significantly decreased work-related illnesses, injuries, and deaths. When a worker is seriously injured or killed in a workplace accident, OSHA must be notified and may conduct an investigation. This could impact your construction injury claim.
