Workers’ compensation and OSHA compliance are two different things. However, in practice these two laws are complimentary in the day-day operations of an employer. Success in one area can lead to success in another, proper data tracking in one area can lead to proper data tracking in another, etc.
The better an organization can understand the scope of requirements of these two laws is the more efficient and successful the company will be at implementing best practices that lead to eliminating injuries and reducing workers’ comp costs.

- Key points of employer OSHA compliance requirements
