Protecting the Safety and Health of Workers
As detailed in Governor Phil Scott's recent order, the Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Agency (VOSHA) has developed training and other materials to inform Vermonters on appropriate safety measures necessary to return to work amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Training and other materials were developed in conjunction with the Vermont Department of Health and the Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
What is VOSHA?
Since 1974, Vermont’s Occupational and Health Administration (VOSHA) has labored diligently to protect the health and safety of working Vermonters. A safe and Helpful workplace is important to the financial wellbeing of an establishment. Employees are more productive and happier when employers have taken the steps necessary to reduce the risk of injury or illness. A first line of defense against rising Workers’ Compensations costs is to reduce or eliminate the injuries in your workplace. VOSHA wants to work with employers and employees to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses through education and enforcement activities.
