Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)

This act establishes a system of laws to promote and regulate workplace safety.

First, this act requires an employer to furnish conditions of employment and a place of employment free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious injury or harm to its employees.

Second, OSHA enforces regulations which require employers to undertake specific safety and health precautions.

Religious organizations are not required to keep OSHA injury and illness records but are still required to report to OSHA any employee's fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye.
