Employer is responsible to protect employees.

"...the OSHA Act places the onus of protecting employees upon the employer since the hazard(s) are present in the workplace under his or her control.  The Agency (OSHA) interprets this to mean not only that the employer provide training, personal protective equipment, engineering control, and so forth, but also that the employer has the responsibility to take necessary measures to insure that employees adhere to safety standards."
