OSHA has updated its Whistleblower Investigation Manual to help employers, workers, and their representatives understand the investigative process and how to request documents from OSHA during and after an investigation.

The new material affirms that the standard for all whistleblower investigations is whether there is "reasonable cause to believe" that a violation occurred.

The manual also provides guidance on disclosure requests under the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act.
