Speak Up for Worker Representation in OSHA Inspections!
OSHA is currently working on a new rule affirming workers' right to choose a representative during safety investigations. National COSH and our partners at Sur Legal need YOUR voice to make it even stronger!
Submit a comment directly to OSHA through this link, urging them to allow workers to choose their OSHA inspection representative. Draw from your personal experience to emphasize why this matters to you. Consider the following:
- Would I, as a worker, speak up during an inspection without a trusted rep accompanying the OSHA investigator during the walkaround? If not, share these concerns with OSHA, providing specific workplace examples.
- Reflect on real-life workplace examples to strengthen your comment. For example, was there a time when workers couldn’t participate fully in an inspection because the OSHA investigator didn’t speak their preferred language? Your comment can make a difference. Act NOW and let OSHA know why this change is vital for safer workplaces.

Protect Workers from Deadly Heat!
2,000 workers die each year from dangerous heat exposure on the job.
Exposure to excessive heat is one of the most dangerous problems facing workers today. Congress has the power to protect workers now by passing the interim heat standard.
National COSH and Public Citizen invite you to join us and raise your voice for Heat Stress Action Week.
Manager Andrew "Hunter" Kirkpatrick dumped their lunches, threatened to call the police regarding their immigration status and much more. The workers are asking you to flood their IG asking Hunter to resign.
Let's show these workers some solidarity!
DIRTY DOZEN: KINGSPAN
While Kingspan may describe itself as “planet passionate”, their employees will tell you otherwise. At their Santa Ana, California plant, Kingspan subjects employees to indoor air pollution. Employees were so concerned for their safety that they conducted their own independent, indoor air monitoring test and found unhealthy levels of air pollution. For these reasons and more, we urge you to help us tell the green building community that Kingspan is not the sustainable partner it presents itself to be.
DIRTY DOZEN: HILTON HOTELS
Rooms are much dirtier when they go days without cleaning, but Hilton recently announced plans to end the standard of automatic daily housekeeping. Hilton said its goal is to “retrain customers” to expect reduced housekeeping services. But Hilton has ALSO said that customers can opt for daily housekeeping at no extra charge – just call the front desk and ask for your room to be cleaned every day. Join housekeepers’ fight for safe workloads by signing their petition and opting in to daily housekeeping whenever you stay at a hotel.
