New OSHA Rule Codifies Worker Representation and Improves Safety

Washington, D.C. (April 1, 2024) – Brent Booker, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

The new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process final rule is a welcome improvement that will empower workers and improve safety. The rule codifies the right of worker representatives – unions and union members – to participate in the OSHA inspection process and raise concerns about workplace hazards without fear of employer retaliation.


Through the Laborers’ Health and Safety Fund of North America, we are proud to have partnered with OSHA and fellow unions on the development of this final rule and we look forward to continue working with OSHA to improve job site safety.
