Occupational Health and Safetly protects workers by setting standards for the workplace. They provide quidelines for working with hazardous chemicals, institute regulations with regard to protective equipment like hard hats and eye protection, and they limit the number of hours a person can work at a particular job (preventing injury due to fatigue).

These are just three things in a long list of why OHSA is an important contributor to workplace policies.
