Unsafe/Unhealthy Job Conditions

You have the right to a workplace free of recognized health and safety hazards. Laws are in place to protect you from employers who put profit before the health and safety of workers. With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women, by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance. OSHA is part of the U.S. Department of Labor.

If you need to file a complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration about a hazardous work condition, follow the step-by-step instructions on "How to File an OSHA Complaint” on the AFL-CIO website or visit OSHA.
