    Under OHSA, an employer can be a corporation or an individual owner. In a large organization, the employer is typically represented by senior management. They may delegate the tasks required to fulfill their duties to Human Resources or Health and Safety Managers. But, they cannot outsource the legal responsibility. In a small organization, the employer is often the owner themselves. In this case, they may be the ones carrying out the tasks involved in fulfilling the employer’s duties.
