Article excerpt: The Occupational Health and Safety Administration is a US government regulatory body that was set up for the purpose of implementing and monitoring compliance with health and safety codes and legislation that is applicable to all commercial and other organisations. The standards and regulations range from general health and safety to data protection. Although a number of these regulations are general in nature, others are industry specific. For example, specific regulations have been developed which relate to the construction and maritime industries. The consequences of violations can be measured in two areas, these being financial penalties and other consequences.
