    Explanation
    OSHA regulations ensure workplace safety by performing job site safety inspections, requiring the use of safety equipment, and training employers about safety issues.

Accident insurance helps cover medical expenses and lost wages in the event of an accident or injury at the workplace.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the employer because they have the primary responsibility for ensuring the safety of their employees in the workplace. This includes implementing safety protocols, providing necessary training and equipment, and maintaining a hazard-free environment. While workers also have a role in following safety guidelines, it is ultimately the employer's duty to prioritize and enforce workplace safety. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, plays a regulatory role in setting and enforcing workplace safety standards, but the ultimate responsibility lies with the employer.
