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 workplaces. 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.
