SAFETY AND HEALTH PROTECTION ON THE JOB	 	
 
ALASKA LAW AS 18.60.010 to .105 – provides safety and health protection for workers through promotion of safe and healthful working conditions 
throughout the State. Requirements of the law include the following: 
 
EM	PLOYERS:	 	Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees, 	employment,	 and a place of employment free from recognized hazards that 	
are causing or are likely to cause death or serious harm to his employees;  and shall comply with occupational safety and h ealth 
standards issued under the law.	
 	 	EMPLOYEES:	 	Each employee shall comply with all occupational safety and health standards, rules, 	regulations,	 and orders issued under the law 	
that apply to his own actions and conduct on the job.   
The Alaska Department 	of Labor and Workforce Development has the primary responsibility for administering the law. It issues 	
occupational safety and health standards, and its Compliance Officers conduct job site inspections to ensure compliance with the 
law.	
 	 	INSPECTION:	 	Th	e law requires that a representative of the employer and a representative authorized by the employees be given an opportunity t	o 	
accompany the Compliance Officer for the purpose of aiding the inspection.  Pursuant to AS 18.60.087, time spent by an employ ee 
a iding the inspection shall be considered as time worked, and the employee shall be compensated accordingly.  
 
Where there is no authorized employee representative, the Compliance Officer must consult with a reasonable number of employe es 
concerning safety  a nd health conditions in the workplace.	
 	 	COMPLIANCE	 	
COMPLAINT:  	
Employees or their representatives have the right to file a complaint in writing with the nearest Alaska Department of Labor 	and 	
Workforce Development office requesting an inspection if they be lieve unsafe or unhealthful conditions exist in their workplace. Their 
names will be withheld upon request.  
 
Employees and their representatives have a right to call an inspector’s attention to possible violations in writing or orally .  
The law provides th at employees may not be discharged or discriminated against in any way for filing safety and health complaints or 
otherwise exercising their rights under the law.	
 	 	DISCRIMINATION	 	
COMPLAINT:  	
Pursuant to AS 18.60.089, an employee may not be 	discharged or 	discriminated against 	because	 they filed a complaint, instituted, or 	
caused to be instituted a pr oceeding related to the enforcement of occupational safety  and health standards, or has testified or is 
e xpected to testify in a proceeding related to oc cupational safety  and health. An  employee 	
who believes they have been 	
discriminated against may file a complaint with the nearest OSHA and/or Alaska Occupat ional Safety and Health office within 30 days 
of the alleged discrimination . 	
 	  	
CITATION:	 	If upon inspect	ion	, the Compliance Office	r believes an employer has violated the law, a citation alleging such violations will be issued 	
to the employer. Each citation will specify a time period within which the alleged violation must be corrected.   
The citation must be prominently displayed at or near the place of alleged violation for five days, or until it is corrected, whichever is 
later, to warn employees of dangers that may exist there.  
 	
PROPOSED	 	
PENALTY: 	
The law provides for mandatory penalties against employers o	f up to $	15,625	.00	 for each ser	ious violation and for optional penalties 	
of up to $15,6 25 .00  for other violations.  Penalties of up to $1 5,625 .00 per day may be proposed for failure to correct violations within 
the proposed time period. Also, any employer who willfully or repeatedly violates the law may be assessed penalties of up to 
$ 156 ,259.00  for each violation.  Current penalty supplements may be found here:  https://labor.alaska.gov/lss/program_directives.htm.  
 
Criminal penalties are also provided for in the law.  Any willful violation resulting in death of an employee upon conviction  is 
punishable  by a fine not more than $10,000 or by impr isonment for not more than 6 months, or by both.  Conviction of an employer 
after a first conviction doubles these maximum penalties.  
 	
VOLUNTARY	 	
ACTIVITY: 	
While providing penalties for violations, the law also en	courages efforts by labor and management, b	efore an inspection, to reduce 	
injuries and illnesses arising out of employment.   
The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development encourages employers and employees to reduce workplace hazards 
voluntarily and to develop and improve safety and heal th programs in all workplaces and industries.  
 
Such cooperative action would initially focus on the identification and elimination of hazards that could cause death, injury , or illness 
to employees and supervisors .  Upon request of an  employer, the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development will 
furnish a consultant who will inspect the premises and identify hazards without assessing penalties .
