Safe working conditions are a requirement of a government organization called OSHA that is already in place. They are extremely powerful and have open phones lines. If you haven't dealt with them, you couldn't possibly imagine the damage they can do to employers if they find you endangering lives. Or even not pro actively making safety your top priority. More and more people realize this service is offered, and they're already paying for it. Unions are a dinosaur when it comes to " protecting workers".
OSHA is all well and good, but is often time over ruled, as Bush did to the meat packers in 2001. They aren't as all powerful as you think.
also, if you are an OSHA fan, can I assume you prefer national government agencies to solve problems, rather than it being handled between the two parties?
