Agency will hold public meeting October 13

Posted October 1, 2021

OSHA will hold a virtual meeting October 13, 2021, to solicit public comments and suggestions on key issues facing its Whistleblower Protection Program. This is the eighth in a series of meetings on how the agency can improve the program.

The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET via telephone and virtually via Microsoft Teams. OSHA will provide Spanish language translation during the meeting. Those interested in joining or participating must register in English or Spanish by October 6.

Specifically, OSHA is seeking comments on:

  1. How can OSHA deliver better whistleblower customer service?
  2. What kind of assistance can OSHA provide to help explain the agency’s whistleblower laws to employees and employers?
  3. What can OSHA do to ensure that workers are protected from retaliation for raising concerns related to the pandemic?

Comments must be submitted by October 6 through and should be identified with Docket No. OSHA-2018-0005.
