    We work in a office where there are no water fountains.The only water source is from the sinks in the "cafeteria" if that is what you want to call it. We do have a ice machine but you have to scoop that. Right now the water supply has been cut off due to the sinks being stopped up and this is going on for a week. They did have water for us to drink for a day. 6 gallons for almost 200 people! One of the bathrooms were stopped up for almost a week before someone came out to fix it. The air quality is also very poor, dealing with dust mites. If there was a survey taken you would discover that have the workers here have respiratory problems due to the working environment here, so who do we contact. we are located in Charleston, SC

    Hi. I would suggest you talk to your Personnel Office and file your concerns in wrting. In addition, you will want to keep a log of the interactions and problems you have.
    For actual safety regulations visit OSHA at http://www.osha.gov/
