The New York State Public Employee Safety
and Health Act of 1980 provides job safety and health
protection for workers through the promotion of safe and
healthful working conditions throughout the State.
Requirements of the Act include the following:
Employers:The Act requires that employers furnish employees a work-
place free from recognized hazards and in compliance with
the safety and health standards applicable to the employer’s
workplaces and other regulations issued by the Commissioner
of Labor under the Act.
Employees: The Act requires that employees comply with all safety and
health standards and other regulations issued under the Act
that apply to their actions and conduct on the job.
   Enforcement:The New York State Department of  Labor’s Division of
Safety and Health (DOSH) is responsible for administering
and enforcing the Act.  The Commissioner issues safety and
health standards, and Safety and Health Inspectors and
Hygienists conduct on-site 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 DOSH Inspector or Hygienist
for the purpose of aiding the inspection.
Where there is no authorized employee representative, the
DOSH Inspector or Hygienist must consult with a reasonable
number of employees concerning safety and health conditions
in the workplace. OrderIf the DOSH Inspector or Hygienist believes an employer
has violated the Act, an order to comply will be issued to the
employer.  Each order will specify a time period within
which the violation must be corrected.  If the violation
remains uncorrected, the employer may be subject to
monetary penalties.
The DOSH order to comply must be prominently displayed
at or near the place of violation to warn employees of
dangers that may exist
Complaint:Employees or their representatives have the right to file a
complaint, in writing, with the nearest DOSH office
requesting an inspection if they believe unsafe or unhealthful
conditions exist in their workplace.  DOSH will withhold,
on request, names of  employees complaining.
Any interested person or representative of such person or
groups of persons may bring to the attention of the State
Department of Labor a complaint regarding the
administration or enforcement of the Public Employees
Safety and Health Program.  The State Department of
Labor will investigate each complaint and will notify the
complainant in writing of the results of such investigation as
well as further channels for complaint.  Such complaints may
also be made to the United States Department of Labor,
Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 201 Varick
Street, New York, New York 10014.
         Discrimination: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.
Employees who believe that they have been discriminated
against may file a complaint with the nearest DOSH office
within 30 days of the alleged discrimination.
         VoluntaryThe Department of Labor encourages employers and
       Activity:employees to reduce workplace hazards voluntarily and to
develop and improve safety and health programs in all
Such cooperative action would initially focus on the
identification and elimination of hazards that could cause
death, injury or illness to employees and supervisors.  On a
voluntary basis, employers may request that the DOSH
office furnish consultant services to assist the employer in
meeting job-site compliance with safety and health standards.
