Job Safety and 
Health Protection
THE  VIRGINIA  OCCUPATIONAL  SAFETY  AND  HEALTH  (VOSH)  LAW,  BY  AUTHORITY  OF  TITLE  40.1  OF  THE  LABOR  LAWS  OF 
VIR GINIA,  PROVIDES  JOB  SAFETY  AND  HEALTH  PROTECTION  FOR WORKERS.  THE  PURPOSE  OF  THE  LAW  IS  TO  ASSURE 
SAFE  AND  HEALTHFUL  WORKING  CONDITIONS  THROUGHOUT  THE  STATE.  THE  VIRGINIA  SAFETY  AND  HEALTH  CODES 
BOARD  PROMULGATES  AND  ADOPTS  JOB  SAFETY  AND  HEALTH  STANDARDS,   AND  EMPLOYERS  AND  EMPLOYEES  ARE 
REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH THESE STANDARDS. THESE STANDARDS MAY BE FOUND AT THE FOLLOWING WEB ADDRESS:  
http://www.doli.virginia.gov/doli_regulations/doli_regulations.html .    YOU  MAY  ALSO  CONTACT  THE  DEPARTMENT  OF  LABOR  AND 
INDU STRY OFFICES LISTED BELOW TO RECEIVE PRINTED COPIES OF THE VIRGINIA UNIQUE STANDARDS AND OBTAIN THE 
NAMES OF PUBLISHERS OF THE FEDERAL IDENTICAL STANDARDS.  
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 harm to his employees, and shall comply with 
occupational safety and health standards issued under the law.  
Employees  
Each employee shall comply with all oc cupational safety and health 
standards, rules, regulations and orders issued under the Law that apply to 
his own actions and conduct on the job.  
Inspection  
The Law requires that a representative of the employer and a 
representative authorized by the employ ees be given an opportunity to 
accompany the VOSH inspector for the purpose of aiding the inspection.  
Where there is no authorized employee representative, the VOSH inspector 
must consult with a reasonable number of employees concerning safety and 
health c onditions in the workplace.  
Citation  
If upon inspection VOSH 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 VOSH citation must be prominently displayed at or near the place of 
alleged violation for three days or until the violation is corrected, whichever is 
later, to warn employees of dangers that may exist there.  
Proposed Penalty  
The 
Law  provides  for mandatory  penalties against private  sector employers of 
up  to $15,375 for each serious violation  and for optional penalties of up  to 
$15,375 for each other–than–serious  violation. Penalties  of up  to $15,375 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 $153,742 for each such violation. 
Public Sec tor employers, all  departments, agencies , institutions or other 
political  subdivisions of  the Commonwealth, are subject to  the penalty 
provisions  of 16VA C 25- 60- 260. 
Criminal  penalties are als o provided for in the Law . Any willful violation 
resulting in the death of  an employee  is  punishabl e, upon conviction, by  a fine 
of not more than $70,00 0 or by imprisonment for not more than six  months, or 
by both. Subsequent conviction of  an em ployer  after a  first conviction doubles 
these maximum  penalties.  Complaint  
Employees or their representatives have the right  to file a complaint with the 
nearest VOSH office requesting an inspection if they believe unsafe or  un healthy conditions exist in their workplace. VOSH will withhold, on request, 
names of employees filing complaints. Complaints may be made at the 
De partmen t of Labor and Industry addresses shown below.  
Discrimination  
It is illegal to retaliate against an employee for using any of their right under 
the law, including raising a safety or health concern with the employer or 
VOSH, or reporting a work - related inj ury or i l lness.   
An employee who believes they have been discriminated against for 
exercis ing their rights under the Law, may file a complaint with the 
Commissioner of  the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry within 60 
days of the alleged discriminatio n.  
CASPA  
Complaints a bout State Plan Administration: Any person may complain to 
the Regional Administrator of OSHA (address below) concerning the 
Administration of the State Safety and Health Program.  
State Coverage  
The VOSH program shall apply to all publ ic and private sector businesses in 
the State except for Federal agencies, businesses under the Atomic Energy 
Act, railroad rolling stock and tracks, certain Federal enclaves, and 
businesses covered by the Federal Maritime jurisdiction.  
Voluntary Activity  
Voluntary efforts by the employer to assure its workplace is in compliance 
with the Law are encouraged. Voluntary Safety and Health Consultation 
and Training Programs exist to assist employers. These services may be 
obtained by contacting the Virginia Depa rtment of Labor and Industry 
addresses  
Recordkeeping  
Employers now have a new system for tracking workplace injuries and 
illnesses. OSHA’s new recordkeeping log (Form 300) is simpler to understand 
and use. Using a question and answer format, the revised re cordkeeping rule 
provides guidance for recording occupational injuries and illnesses and 
explains how to classify specific cases. Smaller employers (10 or fewer 
employees) are exempt from most requirements. To see if your industry is 
partially exempt, visi t the OSHA W ebsite at  www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/ 
pub3169text.html.  
Accident Reporting  
All fatalities must be reported to VOSH within eight (8) hours. All injuries or 
ill nesses that result in an in - patient hospitalization, amputation or loss of an 
eye must be reported to VOSH within twenty - four (24) hours. Failure to report 
may  result in significant   monetary penalties.
