Occupational Safety and Health Law, Third Edition is the authoritative resource on the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) and accompanying regulations. It examines employer obligations to protect employees from occupational hazards, and provides clear analysis of how the law works—and how it affects clients. It examines every aspect of workplace safety and health law, including recordkeeping and reporting, the general duty clause, penalties, union participation, and appeals, together with agency pronouncements and interpretations. Additional highlights include analysis of topics including:
The Third Edition also analyzes the Mine Safety and Health Act (MSHA), workers’ compensation laws, whistleblower protection statutes and related state laws. It also discusses OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, describes the changes and ongoing litigation related to the standard; and explains MSHA’s implementation of the MINER Act following changes to mine safety legislation.
Handy reference materials include the text of the OSH Act, a summary of state plans and state plan information, a table of cases, and a detailed index.

"Whenever I have a question of substance or procedure under the OSH Act or OSHA’s standards, regulations or rules, Occupational Safety and Health Law is my first stop. If it is not also my last, the last is usually a resource to which the treatise has pointed me. I could not do without it. And the Third Edition takes the earlier superb editions to even greater heights. Every OSHA practitioner, however infrequent, should have the volume within easy reach."
