    You Have a Right to a Safe And Healthful Workplace
    IT’S THE LAW!

    • You have the right to notify your employer or HIOSH (808-586-9092) about workplace hazards. HIOSH will keep your name and identity confidential.

    • You have the right to request a HIOSH inspection if you believe that there are unsafe and/or unhealthful conditions at your workplace. You or your representative may participate in the inspection.

    • You have a right to see HIOSH citations issued to your employer. Your employer must post the citations at or near the place of the alleged violation.

    • Your employer must correct workplace hazards by the date indicated on the citation and must certify that these hazards have been reduced or eliminated.

    • You have the right to copies of y our medical records or records of your exposure to toxic and harmful substances or conditions.

    • Your employer may not discriminate against you for making a safety and health complaint or for exercising your rights under the law, some of which are detailed above. You can file a discrimination complaint with HIOSH within 60 days of the discriminatory act.

    • Violations of the HIOSH Law may result in penalties of up to $70,000 per item. Serious violations carry a mandatory penalty of up to $7,000; willful or repeated violations up to $70,000; and failure to correct a violation within the prescribed time can result in assessed penalties of up to $7,000 per day.

    • Your employer must post this notice in the workplace in a prominent location or where such notices are customarily located.

    The Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Law of 1972, Chapter 396, Hawaii Revised Statutes, assures safe and healthful working conditions for every worker in the State. The Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH) of the state Department of Labor & Industrial Relations, has the primary responsibility for administering the HIOSH Law. HIOSH does not cover those hired for domestic service in or about a private home, maritime or shipbuilding employees, and employees covered by a federal agency. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) monitors the HIOSH program to ensure its effectiveness. If you believe HIOSH is not meeting its responsibilities, you may file a Complaint About State Program Administration (CASPA) directly to the OSHA Regional Office
