WPAC Outreach Work Group Charge

As OSHA continues to make the whistleblower program a priority, we recognize that not all employers and employees are aware of statutory whistleblower protections or understand why they are important. In addition, OSHA often hears criticism that complying with the statutes it enforces is too costly.

Consequently, we are seeking your help in informing more employers and employees about worker rights and how protecting employees actually saves a company money. To this end, we would like WPAC to weigh in on the following questions:

  1. What phrases or concepts are most likely to get industry/management interested in a particular OSHA whistleblower guidance product?
  2. What phrases or concepts are most likely to get labor/worker rights groups interested in a particular OSHA whistleblower guidance product?
  3. What types of whistleblower guidance products or communication methods are most likely to be used by workers and employers?
  4. What organizations does WPAC recommend OSHA consult with regarding whistleblower protection and what types of information or support could they provide?
