In the U.S., workers are praised by their bosses when they pull extra hours, stay late, work overtime. With an ultra-competitive job market, hiring comes with the unspoken statement that staying extra hours beyond the good old 9-to-5 is expected.
In January, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) of 1970. In honor of the occasion, OSHA will launch a yearlong commemoration of the OSH Act’s past achievements, current efforts, and future initiatives, all designed to protect the American workforce.
Small businesses face many challenges, from staffing to budgeting, marketing, sales, and more. It’s easy to overlook the potential threats that come from not paying enough attention to workplace safety.

February 1st is the day when most companies post their 300A forms summarizing all of the recordable incidents from the prior year. But, for many companies, this is just the first step in being compliant with the revised recordkeeping requirements.
