Basic Employer Responsibilities

Because it would be virtually impossible to identify and write a set of standards for every job or industry, where no specific standards have been developed under the Act, the General Duty Clause comes into play.

General Duty Clause

  • Each employer shall furnish to each of its employees employment and a place of employment that are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to its employees.
  • Each employer shall comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act.
  • Each employee shall comply with occupational safety and health standards and all rules, regulations and orders issued pursuant to this Act that are applicable to his or her own actions and conduct.
