National Summary

This topic covers workplace health hazards, which include on-the-job stress, chemical exposure, airborne contaminant exposure, ergonomic hazards, and any other workplace condition that has the potential to adversely affect a worker’s health.

OSHA requires that employers implement measures to eliminate or reduce employee exposure to workplace health hazards. However, because health hazards often take time to adversely affect employees, they can be more difficult to identify than safety hazards. In addition, determining whether an illness is work-related is often more difficult than making the same determination for injuries.
