The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
OSHA is an agency of the United States Department of Labor, and its mission is to “assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.”

Filing a Safety and Health Complaint Against a PA or NJ Employer
PA workers have a right to work at a safe workplace environment. Pursuant to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, workers and employees have the right to file a complaint against their employers it they believe there is a serious hazard. Workers may also file a complaint if they believe their employers are violating OSHA safety regulations. Workers can request an OSHA inspection of their workplace. Employees do not have to know whether an OSHA regulation has been violated in order to file a complaint.
