Overview/Description
Employers have a responsibility to maintain safe working conditions for their employees and to comply with the government health and safety standards that are applicable to their establishments. They must also ensure that employees have and use personal protective equipment when required for safety and health as they do their jobs. When employees stay whole and healthy, businesses also benefit. They experience lower workers' compensation insurance costs, decreased payout for return-to-work programs, fewer faulty products, and increased productivity. One of the key ways that employers can maintain safe and compliant working conditions is to conduct regular and thorough workplace inspections.
