P208 (7/17)	The New York State Department of Labor is an Equal Opportunity Employer/Program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals wit\
h disabilities.	
Employers
Employers must provide employees with a workplace that is:
• 	free from recognized hazards,	
• 	in compliance with the safety and health standards that 
apply to the workplace, and	
• 	in compliance with any other regulations issued under the 
PESH Act by the Commissioner of Labor.	
Employees
Employees must comply with all safety and health standards 
that apply to their actions on the job. Employees must also 
comply with any regulations issued under the PESH Act that 
apply to their job.
Enforcement
The New York State Department of Labor administers and 
enforces the PESH Act. The Commissioner of Labor issues 
safety and health standards. The Department’s Division of 
Safety and Health (DOSH) has Inspectors and Hygienists 
who inspect workplaces to make sure they are following	 	
the PESH Act.
Inspection
When DOSH staff inspect a workplace, a representative 
of the employer and a representative approved by the 
employees must be allowed to help with the inspection.  
When there is no employee-approved representative, DOSH 
staff must speak with a fair number of employees about the 
safety and health conditions in the workplace.
Order to Comply
If the Department believes an employer has violated the 
PESH Act, we will issue an order to comply notice to the 
employer. The order will list  dates by which each violation 
must be fixed. If  violations are not fixed by those dates, the 
employer may be fined. 
The order to comply must be posted at or near the place 
of violation, where it can be easily seen. This is to warn 
employees that a danger may exist. 	
Post Conspicuously	
Complaint
Any interested person may file a complaint if they believe 
there are unsafe or unhealthful conditions in a public 
workplace. This includes:
• 	An employee	
• 	A representative of an employee	
• 	Groups of employees	
• 	A representative of a group of employees	
Make this complaint in writing to the nearest DOSH office 
or by email to:	 [email protected]	. On request, 	
DOSH will not release the names of any employees who file 
a complaint. The Department of Labor will evaluate each 
complaint. The Department will notify the person who made 
the complaint of the results of the investigation.  
These complaints may also be made to the United States 
Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration online at: 	www.osha.gov	. 	
Discrimination
Employees may not be fired or discriminated against in any 
way for filing safety and health complaints or otherwise 
exercising their rights under the Act.
If an employee believes that they have been discriminated 
against, he or she may file a complaint with the nearest 
DOSH office. File this complaint within 30 days of the 
discrimination incident.
Voluntary Activity
The Department of Labor encourages employers and 
employees to voluntarily: 
• 	reduce workplace hazards, and 	
• 	develop and improve safety and health programs in all 
workplaces.	
The Division of Safety and Health can provide free help with 
identifying and correcting job site hazards. Employers may 
request this assistance on a voluntary basis by emailing: 
[email protected]	.
