OSHA establishes final Procedures for Safe handling of Nuclear and Environmental Retaliation Complaints

OSHA establishes final Procedures for Safe handling of Nuclear and Environmental Retaliation Complaints
OSHA has recently established final rules that explain the procedures for handling whistleblower retaliation complaints. Similar to many of the other whistleblower provisions, these rules not only help works to correctly file written complaints, but to also file complaints orally.

This particular approach improves the access to the entire complaint filing process for employees who tend to have difficulty in filing written complaints. What’s more, workers also receive copies of the documents that are submitted by the employer with regards to their whistleblower complaints and are subject to confidentiality laws.

Workers who are silent are not safe workers. These changes in the whistleblower provision help workers by standing by them and providing them with the courage to come forward especially if they feel that the employer is violating the environmental or nuclear safety laws.

The rule basically covers all those workers who wish to voice concerns over nuclear and environmental safety issues, over clean air and water, solid wastes, safe drinking water and toxic substances.
