How to File a Workplace Safety and Health Complaint with UOSH

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 gives employees the right to file complaints about workplace safety and health hazards. Complaints from employees and their representatives are taken seriously.

If you would like to file a complaint to report workplace safety or health hazards to UOSH, choose one of the following:

  • If there is an emergency or the hazard is immediately life-threatening call 1-801-530-6901.
  • Download the UOSH complaint form, complete it and then fax or mail it to UOSH:

    • Labor Commission
      Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division
      160 East 300 South
      PO Box 146650
      Salt Lake City, UT 84114-6650
      Fax No. 801- 530-7606

To report workplace situations of imminent danger of death or serious injury call 801-530-6901, or 801-530-6494.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act gives complaintants the right to request that their names not be revealed to their employers.

File your complaint NOW online. (Note: Most online complaints are addressed by UOSH's phone/fax system.) Written, signed complaints submitted to UOSH are more likely to result in onsite UOSH inspections. If you are concerned about confidentiality, you may prefer to file your complaint from your home computer or local library.
