How to file an OSHA complaint
The OSH Act authorizes OSHA compliance safety and health officers (CSHOs) to conduct workplace inspections at reasonable times.
OSHA conducts inspections without advance notice, except in rare circumstances (e.g. Imminent Danger)
In fact, anyone who tells an employer about an OSHA inspection in advance can receive fines and a jail term.
OSHA standards fall into four categories: General Industry, Construction, Maritime, and Agriculture.
OSHA issues standards for a wide variety of workplace hazards
Where there are no specific OSHA standards, employers must comply with The General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1)
