Generations of Experience / OSHA Compliance
On December 29, 1970, President Nixon signed the Occupational Safety and Health Act into law, and OSHA was created. OSHA’s mission is to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities through enforcement of their standards for workplace safety and health.
At first, OSHA standards were viewed as burdensome and regulators were met with considerable resistance. But with time, OSHA has greatly improved, and today most businesses are readily compliant. In the 42 years since OSHA was established, vast improvements have been made in workplace safety. While U.S. employment has doubled from 56 million workers to 115 million workers since 1971, workplace fatalities have been reduced by 62%, and occupational injuries and illnesses have dropped 40%.
At R. Baker & Son, workplace safety is our number one priority and we are 100% compliant with OSHA standards at all times. All of our personnel, from top management through field staff, are thoroughly and continuously trained in safety procedures and regulations. As a result, our safety performance continually far-exceeds requirements and industry averages.
