actions and conduct on the job.  
The  Nevada 	Occupational Safety and Health 	
Administration (Nevada  OSHA	) of the Division of 	
Industrial Relati	ons, Department of Business and 	
Industry, has the primary responsibility for 
administering the Act.  Nevada OSHA  enforces 
occupational safety and health standards, and its 
Saf ety and Health Representatives/ Industrial 
Hygienists conduct jobsite inspections  	
to ensure 	
compliance with the Act. 
INSPECTION: 
The Act requires that a representative of the employer 
and a representative authorized by the employees be 
given an opportunity to accompany the Nevada OSHA  
inspector for the purpose of aiding the inspection.  
Where there is no authorized employee 
representative, the Nevada OSHA Safety and Health 
Representative/  Industrial Hygienist must consult with 
a reasonable number of employees concerning safety 
and health conditions in the workplace.   
COMPLAINT: 
Employees, public or private, or their representatives 
have the right to file a complaint with the nearest 
Nevada OSHA  office requesting an inspection if they 
believe unsafe or unhealthful conditions exist in their 
workplace.  Nevada OSHA  	
will hold confidential 	
names of employees complaining.  
The Act provides that employees may not be 
discharged or discriminated against in any way for 
filing safety and health complaints or otherwise 
exercising their rights under the Act.   
An em

been discriminated against may file a complaint within 
thirty (30) days of the alleged discrimination with the 
nearest  Nevada OSHA  office or with Occupational 
Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of 
Labor, 90 7th Street, Suite 18100, San Francisco, CA 
94103. 
CITATIONS:  
If upon inspection Nevada OSHA  	believes an 	
employer has violated the Act, a citation alleging such 
violations will be issued to the employer.  Each citation 
will specify a time period within which the alleged 
violation must be corrected.  
The Nevada OSHA  	citation must be prominently
