If you have been involved in an accident at work, you may have been seriously affected as a result. In addition, you may now have a reason to believe that your workplace is unsafe because of the accident that took place. If you are reluctant to return to work because of the scary incident, it is important to know how workplace accidents are investigated and the rights that you have as an injured worker.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a government department that investigates workplace safety after an incident has taken place. Their goal is to prevent future injuries and illnesses, as well as help workers to have confidence in the safety of their workplace.
