WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration will hold a virtual meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022, to solicit public comments and suggestions related to OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Program.

This is the tenth in a series of meetings on how the agency can improve the whistleblower program.

Open to the public, the meeting will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET via telephone and virtually via Teams. The agency will provide Spanish language translation during the meeting. Those interested in joining or participating in the meeting must register in English or Spanish by Oct. 12, 2022. There is no fee to register.

OSHA is seeking comments on:
