Safety issues have been one of the leading concerns among human resources (HR) professionals. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the government organization that enforces laws and standards to ensure that companies are in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 and its updates. OSHA can conduct inspections of companies and even halt their operations due to safety and health violations. In your assignment, please answer the following questions:
- As an employee, what is your role in improving the safety and health conditions in a company?
- Describe some recent examples of OSHA violations. What should have the company been doing to prevent them?
- As an HR professional, what would you do to help a company prepare for an OSHA inspection?
- Thinking about the COVID-19 pandemic, what could OSHA do to help keep employees safe and healthy?
