While Labor Day often means time off of work to barbeque with friends and family, lounge beachside or just relax
indoors, Contract Laboratory would like to take the time to remind everyone about the importance of employee safety. So, why you are enjoying your Labor Day Holiday off, it’s important to remember everyone behind the scenes that keep workplaces safe.
Whether you work in a highly industrial workplace with dangerous equipment like a manufacturing plant, a building construction site or a biosafety laboratory with explosive chemicals, all have been made safer from the various federal, state or local government laws and regulations made to protect employee workers at their place of work. These are federal agencies like the USA Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which is a federal agency under the US Department of Labor. President Nixon established the federal agency OSHA under the Occupational Safety and Health Act in December 29, 1970. This federal OSHA law regulates much of the aspects of employee safety in the USA and it’s interesting to read the entire Occupational Safety Health Act .
While the federal, state and local governments have laws and regulations to protect employees, there are many people that make overseeing and evaluating employee safety and health their careers. These include everyone from the federal government lawyers developing the laws and regulations to the Industrial Hygienists measuring sound volume to the Laboratory technicians swabbing manufacturing equipment to ensure it is free of dangerous materials.
To everyone that has made Environment (E), health (H) and safety (S) (EHS) or occupational health and employee safety their career or that works to make employee workplaces safer, we would like to take the time to thank you for your passion and commitment! Thank you for all you do in helping to improve employee safety and keeping workers safe!
