OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is dedicated to creating healthy and safe work environments. They do this by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance.
If you are concerned about hazards or safety violations at your workplace, you may want to file a complaint with OSHA. You can do this through the online complaint form, by mail or fax, or by telephone. If you are requesting an on-site inspection, then you must file a written complaint. An on-site inspection will occur if at least one of the criteria on this page is met.
Although hazards and safety violations can be found in any workplace, the construction industry is particularly dangerous. Unsafe working conditions may cause construction workers to fall, be electrocuted, or be struck by an object. If you are a NJ construction worker and are concerned about safety issues at work, don’t hesitate to contact OSHA to file a complaint. The law protects you from retaliation for doing so.
