OSHA Issues Recommended Practices for Anti-Retaliation Programs

The practices will help employers make workers feel comfortable voicing their concerns without fear of retaliation

According to a news release, OSHA has issued Recommended Practices for Anti-Retaliation Programs in order to help create more comfortable workplaces for employees to voice their concerns. The agency says the recommendations are intended to apply to all public and private employers covered by the 22 whistleblower protection laws.

There are five main points that the document highlights: Management leadership, commitment and accountability; system for listening to and resolving employees’ safety and compliance concerns; systems for receiving and responding to reports of retaliation; anti-retaliation training for employees and managers; and program oversight.

"These recommended practices will provide companies with the tools to create a robust anti-retaliation program," said Jordan Barab, acting assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health. "In the long run, it's good for workers and good for business."
