Is your employer one of the 'Dirty Dozen?'

In 1970, the Occupational Health and Safety Act was signed, promising safer working environments for employees all across the nation. Since its passage, "the number of annual workplace deaths has dropped by 65 percent," states a recent article for Oye! Times. Unfortunately, despite the passage of the OHS Act, workplace accidents are still happening resulting in injuries, occupational illnesses and fatalities.
