What rights do I have through OSHA?
The Occupational Health and Safety Act empowered workers throughout the country by ensuring they are not placed in harm’s way. You are entitled to receive information and training about hazards, methods to prevent harm, and the OSHA standards that apply to your workplace in a language you understand. In addition, you may ask OSHA to conduct an inspection anonymously and speak with the inspector in private. Federal laws protect you from discrimination based on your OSHA request, and discrimination for being a “whistleblower” is completely prohibited.
