The Occupational Safety and Health Administration presents a series of regulations and standards to help keep workers in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. safe while on the job. OSHA's NFPA 70E standard is meant to help both employers and workers ensure and improve workplace electrical safety. While some people do attempt to sidestep rules like this, it's generally agreed that proper implementation of the NFPA 70E standard is the better way to go for employers and independent contractors doing electrical work.

New Jersey patients know that the medical staff members who treat them are only human and can make mistakes. Many mistakes are minor or caught very quickly before they can do any harm, but some medical errors can be serious and cause harm to patients or to others. Mistakes involving contaminated materials can spread disease throughout a medical setting. A recent study indicates that mistakes made by health care workers when removing personal protective clothing can contaminate clothing or equipment with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
