  • Tennessee SAFE AND HEALTHFUL WORKPLACE. Labor Law Poster

    You have the right to notify your employer or TOSHA about workplace hazards. You may ask TOSHA to keep your name confidential.

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

    You can file a complaint with TOSHA within 30 days of discrimination by your employer for making safety and health complaints or for exercising your rights under the TOSHA Act or the Tennessee Hazardous Chemical Right-to-Know Act.

    You have a right to see TOSHA 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 rights under the Tennessee Right to Know Law concerning hazardous chemicals in your work area. Your employer must provide training about health effects, protective measures, safe
    handling procedures, as well as information on interpreting labels and material safety data sheets (MSDS). You must be provided access to the material safety data sheets and the workplace chemical list.
