The Arizona Employee Safety and Health Protection law, also known as the Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Act (Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 23-341 to 23-355), is a state law that regulates safety and health in the workplace. The law is administered by the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH).
The law requires employers to provide a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. Employers must comply with all applicable safety and health standards, provide training to employees on safety and health hazards, and investigate accidents and injuries.
Employees have the right to a safe and healthful workplace. Employees have the right to refuse to work in a situation that they believe is unsafe, to report safety and health hazards to their employer, and to request a safety and health inspection from ADOSH.
ADOSH has the authority to inspect workplaces, issue citations for violations of the law, and assess fines. ADOSH can also order employers to take steps to correct safety and health hazards.
If you believe that your employer is violating the Arizona Employee Safety and Health Protection law, you can file a complaint with ADOSH. You can file a complaint online, by mail, or by phone.
