Employers are required by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration to make sure workers are not exposed to hazardous situations and circumstances while on the job. This means following OSHA regulations. When an on-the-job accident occurs in Orlando, Florida, an agent from OSHA may be sent in, depending on the severity of the incident. In other words, if a fatality occurs due to an injury suffered while in the workplace, employers can expect a representative from OSHA to respond in a timely manner.
When an employee goes to work, she or he should not have to worry about sustaining an injury or being killed while on the job. Still, workplace accidents happen all of the time. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is tasked with ensuring that employers are following federal regulations. Recently, OSHA cited Integra Health Management after investigations determined that two violations occurred when a female worker for the company was killed by a patient.
