This is the third in a series of meetings where OSHA is seeking public input on how it can improve whistleblower customer service, and enhance public understanding of the whistleblower laws, as codified in Section 11 (c) of the OSHA Act.

The meeting is open to the public and scheduled for May 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Labor, Frances Perkins Building, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20210 in Room S-3215A-C.

The public may also submit written or electronic comments by May 7, 2019. Please reference Docket No. OSHA-2018-0005.

OSHA is particularly interested in comments on how it can deliver better whistleblower customer service, and the types of assistance it can provide to explain the whistleblower laws it enforces.
