effectiveness of the law governing occupational safety and health in protecting
employees; establishing the circumstances that lead to the abuse of the rights of
employees at the workplace; to examine the legal challenges experienced in addressing
occupational safety and health issues of employees; to suggest ways to counter the
weaknesses and excesses in addressing occupational health and safety in the protection of
employees. The study relied on qualitative methods of data collection and analysis to.
The findings reflect that much as OSHA has been instrumental in covering safety and
health issues in all workplaces, it still leaves a lot to be desired, with employers
exploiting the gap of absence of inspection to compromise the requirements of OSHA as
they continue to expose workers to unsafe and unhealthy work conditions, moreover with
a failure to compensate them. The research concluded that; by introducing the OSHA to
supplement other laws, appears contrary pmiicularly in addressing occupational safety
and health issues, instead the other law seem to be acting to supplement OSHA as per
Section 118. The intention of which OSHA was formed was to address and outline
obligations of employers and employees while at the workplace in order to promote.
workplace security and health. The law has minimized occupational risks but is still with gaps which can be addressed to extend social security to all workers to have an empowered workforce free from duress. The study recommended that; Raising awareness; making consultative arrangements, recruiting of more inspectors, developing a code of ethics for employers to pursue self discipline; developing safety committees at the workplace; reviewing existing legislation, and regular reporting to the parliament by the commissioner oflabor.
