The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently launched a redesigned website for its Whistleblower Protection Program.

The interactive, streamlined design highlights important information and data on more than 20 statutes OSHA enforces.

The redesign includes a new homepage with a video that showcases industries the program covers, and menu options that allow employers and employees to find information about their rights and responsibilities.

Users can access information on protected activities, filing deadlines, and resources based on the subject/industry or statute.

OSHA used feedback received at recent whistleblower stakeholder meetings to influence the redesign.

Under the program, employees may file whistleblower complaints with the agency if they believe they have been retaliated against for engaging in protected activities related to workplace safety and health, airline, commercial motor carrier, consumer product, environmental, financial reform, food safety, motor vehicle safety, healthcare reform, nuclear, pipeline, public transportation agency, railroad, maritime, and securities laws.
