In the years since the introduction of the OSH Act, employers in the United States have seen a significant drop in the number of workplace injuries and deaths. However, the number of employee injuries and deaths remains unacceptable. In an effort to further encourage prevention and bring these numbers down, OSHA is presently developing a new rule that requires employers to actively manage employee safety by implementing an injury and illness prevention program. This rule forms part of OSHA's long-term regulatory agenda and, while no date has been set for it to be passed into law, implementing an injury and illness prevention program will help your organization prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, thereby protecting your employees and reducing the costs of responding to these incidences.
