Tell OSHA: Protect workers now

 

 

On average, 275 U.S. workers die each day from hazardous working conditions. Tell OSHA: Protect workers now. Add your name. Renew the promise. Safe jobs for all.

 

 

 

About 275 U.S. workers die each day because of hazardous working conditions. Each year, working people report nearly 3.5 million work-related injuries and illnesses.

 

With the pandemic, those numbers are now even higher. Tell OSHA: Protect workers now.

Add Your Name

 

Fifty years ago, Congress established the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Every worker was promised the right to a safe job.

 

We’ve made a lot of progress on worker safety since then, but COVID-19 is a devastating reminder that we need even more protection, investment and resources.

 

There are only 1,798 OSHA inspectors who are responsible for inspecting the 10.1 million workplaces. The average penalty for a serious violation is a mere $3,923 for federal OSHA.

 

We need more staff and resources dedicated to protecting working people. We need to fully penalize and hold employers accountable for workplace safety violations.

 

If you believe everyone has the right to a safe job and workplace, tell OSHA to protect working people.

 

In Solidarity,
