If you are being forced to work under unsafe conditions, you have a right to refuse to work. In this case, you should report the hazard to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
On the other hand, if you do not believe that you are in imminent danger, you should still notify your employer of the hazard, and ask them to fix the situation. When you do so, you should make your request in writing, so that there is evidence of the request.If your employer does not respond to your request by fixing the situation, then you should contact OHSA and get the professional advice of a Chicago personal injury lawyer.
