(Rev. 12-09) 
EMPLOYERS: 
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 physical harm to his 
employees; and shall comply with occupational safety 
and health standards adopted under the Act. 
EMPLOYEES: 
Each employee shall comply with all occupational 
safety and health standards, rules, regulations and 
orders issued under the Act that apply to his own 
actions and conduct on the job. 
 
The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration (Nevada OSHA) of the Division of 
Industrial Relations, Department of Business and 
Industry, has the primary responsibility for 
administering the Act.  Nevada OSHA enforces 
occupational safety and health standards, and its 
Safety and Health Representatives/ Industrial 
Hygienists conduct jobsite inspections to ensure 
compliance with the Act. 
INSPECTION: 
The Act requires that a representative of the employer 
and a representative authorized by the employees be 
given an opportunity to accompany the Nevada OSHA 
inspector for the purpose of aiding the inspection. 
 
Where there is no authorized employee 
representative, the Nevada OSHA Safety and Health 
Representative/ Industrial Hygienist must consult with 
a reasonable number of employees concerning safety 
and health conditions in the workplace.  
COMPLAINT: 
Employees, public or private, or their representatives 
have the right to file a complaint with the nearest 
Nevada OSHA office requesting an inspection if they 
believe unsafe or unhealthful conditions exist in their 
workplace.  Nevada OSHA will hold confidential 
names of employees complaining. 
 
The Act provides that employees may not be 
discharged or discriminated against in any way for 
filing safety and health complaints or otherwise 
exercising their rights under the Act.  
 
An employee, public or private, who believes he has 
been discriminated against may file a complaint within 
thirty (30) days of the alleged discrimination with the 
nearest Nevada OSHA office or with U.S. Department 
of Labor/OSHA, Region IX, San Francisco Federal 
Building, 90 - 7
th Street, Suite 18100, San Francisco, 
CA  94103. 
CITATIONS: 
If upon inspection Nevada OSHA believes an 
employer has violated the Act, 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 Nevada OSHA citation must be prominently 
displayed at or near the place of alleged violation for 
three days, or until it is corrected, whichever is later, to 
warn employees of dangers that may exist there.
  
PROPOSED PENALTY: 
The Act provides for mandatory penalties against 
employers of up to $7,000 for each serious violation 
and for optional penalties of up to $7,000 for each 
nonserious violation.  Penalties of up to $7,000 per 
day may be proposed for failure to correct violations 
within the proposed time period.  Also, any employer 
who willfully or repeatedly violates the Act may be 
assessed penalties of up to $70,000 for each such 
violation. 
 
Criminal penalties are also provided for in the Act.  
Any willful violation resulting in death of an employee, 
upon conviction, is punishable by a fine of not more 
than $20,000 or by imprisonment for not more than six 
months, or by both.  Conviction of any employer after 
a first conviction doubles these maximum penalties.  
Penalties may be proposed for public employers.
  
VOLUNTARY ACTIVITY: 
While providing penalties for violations, the Act also 
encourages efforts by labor and management, before 
a Nevada OSHA inspection, to reduce injuries and 
illnesses arising out of employment.  
 
The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration of the Division of Industrial Relations, 
Department of Business and Industry, encourages 
employers and employees to reduce workplace 
hazards voluntarily and to develop and improve safety 
and health 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. 
 
Further information and assistance will be provided by 
Nevada OSHA to employees and employers upon 
request.
