Are All Employers Covered Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)?

A Video FAQ with Mark A. Williams.

OSHA is a law that is there to protect the safety of employees. If you are going to be on a roof working, we want to make sure that you don’t fall off, and that the employer is out there providing some reasonable level of safeguard. Because of that, OSHA applies to almost every single employer. There are some exceptions for certain types of industries, but what I would say to you as a small business person–you have to go into your business expecting that OSHA is going to apply to you unless you find a very specific reason why it doesn’t.
