Workers' Voice Labor Rights Week

When you work in this country, you have the basic right to be safe while working. Your job, age, birthplace, language, or immigration status does not change your rights.

All businesses – large or small are required to keep workers safe. At OSHA, we make sure employers follow safety laws so that workers can go home to their families safely at the end of every shift. And speak up about safety concerns without retaliation.

Labor Rights Week is an annual observance held the week before Labor Day. The Mexican consulates and the U.S. Department of Labor have been collaborating for years to help ensure dignity, equity and justice for all workers.

Share information about safety conditions at work, by calling us at 1-800-321-6742 (OSHA).

Be the Voice

All workers deserve to have their voices heard and have the right to participate in the processes that keep them safe on the job. We have tools and resources to help with this.


Every worker has the right to come home safe

About 15 workers each day in the U.S. are fatally injured due to an occupational incident and thousands fall victim to job-related illnesses and diseases. Every worker has the right to come home safe. Hear the impactful stories and the everlasting effect these losses have on those left behind.
