Occupational Safety & Health Law as it applies to the Employer & Occupier
Under the OSH act an Employer is defined as the person who employs persons for the purpose of carrying out any trade, business, profession, office, vocation or apprenticeship.

The Occupier is defined as the person who has ultimate control over the affairs of the industrial establishment.

In many Industrial Establishments the Occupier and the Employer are one and the same. In such instances the responsibilities of the employers will also include those of the occupiers.

Some responsibilities are assigned to both employers and occupiers.

For simplicity some of the fundamental duties of both the employer and the occupier are listed. The OSH Act (as amended) should be consulted for further details
