DOL IG Issues Report Criticizing OSHA Whistleblower Program Investigations

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Inspector General (IG) issued a report regarding OSHA’s Whistleblower Program concluding that:

  • Only 2% of whistleblower complaints were found to have merit by OSHA; and
  • Approximately 80% of OSHA investigations did not satisfy one or more of eight elements from the Whistleblower Investigations Manual that are essential to the investigative process.

The IG recommended that “the Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) implement controls to oversee and monitor investigations and caseloads, develop specific performance measures, update the Whistleblower Investigations Manual, and designate subject matter experts with technical competencies in specific whistleblower statutes.”
