OSHA-Workplace Safety

OSHA Worker Rights and Protection (OWS01)

When it comes to your workplace, danger should never be just another part of the job. Thanks to laws, federal regulations, and common sense training, American workplaces are largely very safe. But occasionally, things go wrong, and the work environment becomes unsafe. If that happens, you need to know your rights and how the law protects you.

No one likes rocking the boat. But it’s your right to speak up if you feel conditions are dangerous. Of course, ideally you won’t ever need to exercise this right. If things do ever go wrong, though, you’ll need to be well informed and ready to respond. You’ll also benefit from knowing how the law protects you from any potential retaliation.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Summarize federal occupational safety and health standards
• Understand your right to training and information about safety and health issues
• Respond proactively if you believe workplace conditions are unsafe or unhealthy
• Recognize how the law protects you from employer retaliation in case of complaint

Why take this course?

This course is aimed at all workers within the private sector, and public sector workers who are protected by OSHA regulations. This course will show you the fundamentals of your rights in occupational safety. You’ll also learn what to do if you feel conditions are unsafe, and how you’re protected from retaliation if you have to make a complaint.
