Nevada Labor Laws
The Office of the Labor Commissioner oversees state labor laws and is part of the Nevada Department of Business and Industry. The Commissioner investigates complaints about unfair wages, minimum wage, overtime and other wage disputes. It also oversees standards about youth employees and hazardous working conditions.
The Nevada Department of Business and Industry requires employers to report to the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NOSHA) about workplace accidents involving a fatality of one or more employees or the hospitalization of three or more employees within eight hours of learning about the accident. Workplace hazard reports in Nevada can be submitted online, by phone or by email.
Based in Henderson, Nevada, NOSHA applies to all public and private sectors of employment. Nevada OSHA has adopted these unique standards:
- Safety programs
- Steel Erection

Because of the huge entertainment district in Las Vegas, Nevada has many workplace injuries related to the performing arts, spectator sports and similar industries. Consequently, the leisure and hospitality industry has recently seen many workplace injuries and health hazards.
Nationally, the most cited standard, which also receives the highest penalties, is for fall prevention in construction. Falls commonly cause serious work-related injuries and deaths, and OSHA has many guidelines to help prevent them.

OSHA's purpose is to provide safe conditions for workers. OSHA sets very broad and general regulations that most businesses must followed, as well as more detailed standards for specific industries, from construction to cosmetology and beyond.
Receiving OSHA training has benefits beyond meeting requirements and keeping employees safe. It leads to healthier employees with more ease of mind, which increases productivity. Boosting morale, it reduces turnover and the time and resources spent on recruiting and training replacements. It reduces productive workers' time away from the job due to injury and illness. This is all in addition to helping protect you from OSHA's retribution, as it can levy heavy fines for not following the standards presented in American Safety Council's OSHA courses.
