 Attempting to make sense of OSHA regulations but don't know exactly where
 to start? Been to the OSHA internet site and are overwhelmed? Do not be
 concerned. You will locate the answers here. I have attempted to take the
 very best of what the OSHA website has to supply for each little and huge
 business and develop a step-by-step approach to support you recognize your
 company's obligations and what you want to do next. This guide kicks it
 off with a basic introduction to OSHA.

 The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA)
 regulates the hiring and employment activities of agricultural employers,
 farm labor contractors, and associations utilizing migrant and seasonal
 agricultural workers. The Act prescribes wage protections, housing and
 transportation security standards, farm labor contractor registration
 needs, and disclosure needs. The Wage and Hour Division administers this

 The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exempts agricultural workers from
 overtime premium spend, but demands the payment of the minimum wage to
 workers employed on bigger farms (farms employing much more than roughly
 seven full-time workers. The Act has specific kid-labor regulations that
 apply to agricultural employment young children below 16 are forbidden to
 operate during college hours and in specific jobs deemed too dangerous.
 Youngsters employed on their families' farms are exempt from these
 regulations. The Wage and Hour Division administers this law. OSHA also
 has specific safety and overall health standards that could apply to
 agricultural operations.

 The Mine Act holds mine operators accountable for the security and
 wellness of miners supplies for the setting of mandatory safety and health
 standards, mandates miners' training requirements prescribes penalties for
 violations and enables inspectors to close dangerous mines. The safety and
 overall health standards address many hazards like roof falls, flammable
 and explosive gases, fire, electrical energy, gear rollovers and upkeep,
 airborne contaminants, noise, and respirable dust. MSHA enforces security
 and wellness requirements at far more than 13,000 mines, investigates mine
 accidents, and offers mine operators instruction, technical and compliance

 Many agencies administer applications associated solely to the
 construction business. OSHA has unique occupational safety and overall
 health standards for building The Wage and Hour Division , under Davis-
 Bacon and connected acts, calls for payment of prevailing wages and
 rewards The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs enforces
 Executive Order 11246 , which calls for federal construction contractors
 and subcontractors, as well as federally assisted building contractors, to
 provide equal employment opportunity the anti-kickback section of the
 Copeland Act precludes a federal contractor from inducing any employee to
 sacrifice any component of the compensation needed.

 Such occurrences might be subject to the
 [http://search.ft.com/search?queryText=Worker+Adjustment Worker
 Adjustment] and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) WARN offers workers
 early warning of impending layoffs or plant closings. The Employment and
 Education Administration (ETA) offers details to the public on WARN, even
 though neither ETA nor the
 Department] of Labor has administrative duty for the statute, which is
 enforced by means of private action in the federal courts.

 Some of the statutes and regulations enforced by the U.S. Division of
 Labor (DOL) call for that notices be supplied to employees and/or posted
 in the workplace. DOL gives free electronic and printed copies of these
 required posters.
