Washington — OSHA has unveiled a public service announcement and billboard campaign it says is intended to remind workers of the agency’s commitment to protect their safety and health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Are you concerned about your health at work? You have the right to a safe, healthy workplace. The U.S. Department of Labor wants to help. Call the Occupational Safety and Health Administration at 1 (800) 321-OSHA [6742] or visit osha.gov/workers,” the PSA – available in English and Spanish – states.

 

According to a July 7 agency press release, bilingual billboard messages encouraging workers to contact OSHA with any concerns will appear digitally and in print in states under federal OSHA jurisdiction.
