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 
INDUSTRY OFFICES LISTED BELOW TO RECEIVE PRINTED COPIES OF THE VIRGINIA UNIQUE STANDARDS AND OBTAIN THE 
NAMES OF PUBLISHERS OF THE FEDERAL IDENTICAL STANDARDS.
Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a pl\
ace 
of employment free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likel\
y to 
cause death or serious harm to his employees, and shall comply with occu\
pa -
tional safety and health standards issued under the law.
Each employee shall comply with all occupational safety and health stan -
dards, rules, regulations and orders issued under the Law that apply to \
his 
own actions and conduct on the job.
The Law requires that a representative of the employer and a representa -
tive authorized by the employees be given an opportunity to accompany th\
e 
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 conditions in the workplace .
If upon inspection VOSH believes an employer has violated the Law, a cita-
tion alleging such violations will be issued to the employer. Each citation will 
specify a time period within which the alleged violation must be correct\
ed. 
The VOSH citation must be prominently displayed at or near the place of \
al -
leged violation for three days or until the violation is corrected, whic\
hever is 
later, to warn employees of dangers that may exist there.
The Law provides for mandatory penalties against private sector employer\
s 
of up to $12,471 for each serious violation and for optional penalties o\
f up to 
$12,471 for each other–than–serious violation. Penalties of up to \
$12,471 per 
day may be proposed for failure to correct violations within the propose\
d time 
period. Also, any employer who willfully or repeatedly violates the Law may be 
assessed penalties of up to $124,709 for each such violation.
Public Sector employers, all departments, agencies, institutions or othe\
r politi -
cal subdivisions of the Commonwealth, are exempt from the penalty provis\
ions 
of this Law. 
Criminal penalties are also provided for in the Law. Any willful violation result -
ing in the death of an employee is punishable, upon conviction, by a fine of 
not more than $70,000 or by imprisonment for not more than six months, o\
r 
by both. Subsequent conviction of an employer after a first conviction doubles 
these maximum penalties.
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 -

It is illegal to retaliate against an employee for using any of their ri\
ght under 
the law, including raising a safety or health concern with the employer or 
VOSH, or reporting a work-related injury or ilness. 
An employee who believes they have been discriminated against for exerci\
s -
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 
discrimination.
Complaints About 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.
The VOSH program shall apply to all public 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 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 Department of Labor and Industry ad -

Employers now have a new system for tracking workplace injuries and ill -
nesses. OSHA’s new recordkeeping log (Form 300) is simpler to understand 
and use. Using a question and answer format, the revised recordkeeping 
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, visit the OSHA Website at www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/
pub3169text.html.
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 rep\
ort may 
result in significant monetary penalties.
EMPLOYERS: THIS POSTER MUST BE DISPLAYED IN A PROMINENT PLACE IN THE ESTABLISHMENT TO WHICH YOUR EMPLOYEES NORMALLY REPORT TO WORK .
