Southern New Hampshire Occupational Safety and Health Act Discussion Paper

Question Description

I’m working on a business discussion question and need an explanation to help me learn.

When OSHA was enacted in 1970, it was heralded as the most important new source of protection for the U.S. worker in the second half of the twentieth century. From the information in this chapter and the media links, what is your opinion about the effectiveness or the ineffectiveness of the act? Should it be expanded, or should businesses have more freedom to determine safety standards for their workers?
