Know Your Rights

Learn about your rights under OSHA law, and how to take action if you think something is wrong.

  • Work on machines that are safe

  • Be provided required safety gear, such as gloves or a harness and lifeline for falls

  • Be protected from toxic chemicals

  • Request an OSHA inspection, and speak to the inspector

  • Report an injury or illness, and get copies of your medical records

  • See copies of the workplace injury and illness log

  • Review records of work-related injuries and illnesses

  • Get copies of test results done to find hazards in the workplace
