Once you are sure that you have an IQCR complaint to make, then continue on with this link. In writing your complaint, be sure to include the following information:

  • Identify yourself and indicate how you can be reached. (OSHA intends to comply with the Privacy Act regarding any personal identifying information you include)
  • Identify, as specifically as possible, the information in question.
  • Indicate how you are affected by the information.
