How does OSHA keep workplaces safe?

Workplace injuries are something that everyone wants to avoid. Employers in California take certain steps to help make your workspace safer. Many of the guidelines, regulations and rules about workplace safety are designed and enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA is a government agency that reviews accidents to help keep everyone safe when they are at work.

What are common job-related repetitive stress injuries?

When you think of workplace injuries, the first thought to run through your mind might involve the type of injuries that happen suddenly and are immediately apparent. Not all job injuries are acute.

However, you can also reduce your risk of getting injured simply by taking good care of yourself and making sure you are fully prepared for work each day.
