OSHA to host public meeting on whistleblower issues in trucking, railroad industries

May 9, 2018

Washington — Workers in the trucking and railroad industries filed the most whistleblower complaints in 2017, according to OSHA, prompting the agency to schedule a public meeting on whistleblower issues for industry stakeholders.

In advance of the June 12 meeting, OSHA is seeking input on whistleblower practices and experiences, particularly:

  • How can OSHA deliver better whistleblower customer service?
  • What kind of assistance can OSHA provide to help explain the whistleblower laws it enforces?

Those interested in attending must register by May 29. Comments are due June 5.

OSHA enforces whistleblower provisions under 22 statutes.
