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.

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.

Each citation will specify a time period within which the alleged violation must be corrected. The Nevada OSHA citation must be prominently displayed at or near the place of alleged violation for three days, or until it is corrected, whichever is later, to warn employees of dangers that may exist there. P ROPOSED PEN ALTY: The Act provides for mandatory penalties aga inst employ ers of up to $14,502 for each serious violation and for opti onal penalties of up to $14,502 for eac h nonserious violati on.
