OSHA Creates On-line Reporting Process

OSHAThe Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the DOL announced a few days ago that whistleblowers will now be able to file complaints related to violations of the 22 laws that come under OSHA’s purview through an on-line form.  The report can be made at www.osha.gov/whistleblower/WBComplaint.html.

Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels stated, “Whistleblower laws protect not only workers, but also the public at large and now workers will have an additional avenue available to file a complaint with OSHA.”

Workers can still make complaints in writing or by calling OSHA or one of its regional or area offices.
