Too many workers face the reality that by going to work they could get sick—or worse—and make their friends and family ill because they don't have the protections they need on the job. But, as bills pile up, they have to make an almost impossible choice between their and their family's safety or losing their homes and everything else they've worked for.
A new online resource is now available to help workers in Michigan and other states understand their rights, access critical safety information, and anonymously report unsafe working conditions. SafeJobChecklist.org includes six questions to help determine whether the “guidance” being issued by the federal government is achieving its goals without adequate oversight from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
This is an easy-to-use tool that informs workers about the steps their employer should take to keep them safe on the job during the COVID-19 pandemic and gives them the opportunity to anonymously report their conditions.
Safejobchecklist.org’s focus on anonymity will help safeguard the identity of workers who are blowing the whistle on a lack of adequate protections on their job. It does not require workers to identify themselves to view or use the checklist.
