ConnectiCOSH wins freedom of information appeal to obtain OSHA whistleblower documents

On August 14, 2014 the Connecticut Council on Occupational Safety and Health received internal OSHA documents regarding the worker whistleblower program. The original request was made in order to determine how to improve protections for workers facing harassment and retaliation when raising health and safety concerns. These documents were initially requested on June 2, 2010 and were withheld by OSHA with a claim that they were “interagency documents.”

On June 3, 2011 an appeal was filed to obtain the withheld documents and on August 11, 2014 the denial of the information was overruled. The three documents provided included a 1998 memo regarding a whistleblower task force, a 2009 review of the whistleblower program and a 2010 program review report.

“We look forward to reviewing all the information and preparing a summary that we will present to our elected officials so that workers’ first amendment rights will be protected,” said Steve Schrag, co-chair of ConnectiCOSH.
