The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for establishing, maintaining, and enforcing workplace safety standards for all US work environments. Under federal law, employees are entitled to a safe workplace that is void of known health and safety hazards. Additionally, you have the right to be trained in a language you understand, operate safe machinery, be provided necessary safety gear, request an OSHA inspection, report an injury/illness, and view copies of workplace hazard or work-related injury reports.


Concerned about an unsafe condition in your workplace? Please contact us — we can assist you in filing an OSHA complaint. Remember: It is illegal for an employer to fire, demote, or transfer, or otherwise retaliate against a worker for using their rights under the law. If you believe you have been treated unfairly due to filing of a complaint, you must file a whistleblower complaint within 30 days of the retaliation.
