WHAT IS OSHA?

OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This agency is responsible for the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) – the primary law of the land when it pertains to workplace safety and health across the United States of America and its territories. If you are a restaurant industry employer, manager, employee, executive at any level, trainer, or a support staff member, you must comply with OSHA. Other than the fact that it is the right thing to do to keep people safe, you must comply with OSHA because it is the law – federal and, in some instances, state law. It is the legal responsibility under the Federal Law of the OSH Act for all employers to provide a safe and healthful workplace for every employee.
