Oregon Labor Laws

The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OR-OSHA) covers most public and private-sector employees, exempting federal employees, the United States Postal Service, maritime employers, and those working on military reservations, at Crater Lake National Park, at federal installations, and at Indian reservations.

OR-OSHA's website is a great place for new employers and small business owners to learn about keeping their employees safe, insurance, worksite safety, reporting injuries, and appealing a citation. Always on the forefront of technology, Oregon offers mobile and desktop apps that address issues like safe lifting and ladder safety. Construction professionals can learn about the new silica rule, oxygen-fuel gas facts, and general contractor responsibilities for hazard communications on the department website.

One of the primary functions for OR-OSHA is running the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). Recognizing that it can't ensure worker safety and health standards alone, the program offer various partnership opportunities for industry and laborers to work in a cooperative attempt that benefits everyone. For more information on their partnership programs, see VPP's page.

Oregon Top OSHA Violations

Oregon's leading cause of workplace fatalities has recently been related to transportation and material moving. Though there can be many causes for this type of tragedy, backover, which occurs when a reversing vehicle hits a worker behind it, is common. Nationwide, more than 70 workers were killed in this manner in 2011.

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 Guidelines

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.
