New OSHA Training Component Emphasizes Workers' Rights

Sunday, August 1, 2010
 
Every OSHA 10- and 30-hr. Outreach Training Program now must include a new training component called Introduction to OSHA, which emphasizes workers’ rights, including their right to:

• Safe and healthful workplaces;

• Knowledge of the presence and effects of hazardous chemicals;

• Review information about injuries and illnesses in their workplaces;

• Receive training;

• Request/file for an OSHA inspection and participate in the inspection; and

• Be free from retaliation for exercising their safety and health rights.
