New Online Service For Whistleblowers
A new service allows whistleblowers to reach out to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) through the internet. Previously, whistleblowers had to call OSHA or submit a written complaint to their respective regional office. Whistleblowers are protected under section 11(c) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 as well as the other 21 statutes which cover whistleblowers within the nuclear, transportation, pipeline and environmental industries.
According to the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, “[t]he ability of workers to speak out and exercise their rights without fear of retaliation provides the backbone for some of American workers’ most essential protections. 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.”
Hopefully, the new internet service will make it easier for employees working in unsafe conditions everywhere to speak out against their employers through confidential and secure channels.
