Personal Injury Attorneys

If the event of a workplace hazard, the Occupational Safety and Health Act and other state laws are clear on your rights. How the unsafe conditions should be dealt with depend on how serious and immediate the danger is.

Imminent Danger

If you feel that your life is in imminent danger due to a workplace hazard, you have every right to refuse to work. For imminent danger to exist, the following must be true:

  • Your employer refuses to rectify the problem
  • You believe that performing a task poses a real danger of death or a serious injury
  • There’s not enough time to eliminate the danger through any other way

If the Danger Is Not Imminent

If the danger is not deemed imminent, the first thing to do is ask your employer to sort out the problem. If your employer doesn’t know about the hazard, they won’t to know to deal with it promptly!

You must remember to document your request, either in writing or jotting down notes of the date you made the request, who you spoke to, and what was said. If you are hesitant to go to your employer, complain to OSHA or a similar state agency.

If your employer fails to act or takes action against you for complaining, take your complaint to OSHA.

Both state and federal law prohibit the employer from retaliating against you if:

  • You refuse to work
  • You complain about a health and safety violation
  • You assert your rights under these laws
