    Explanation
    The statement implies that if OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) conducts an inspection, the expectation is for employees to be honest and provide truthful information.

    Explanation
    If you believe that you have faced consequences or retribution for asserting your safety rights, you are given a 30-day window to reach out to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) about the issue.

    • D.

      Repeated and serious

    Correct Answer
    C. Willful and repeated
    Explanation
    A company can receive citations from OSHA for violating safety regulations. The worst types of citations a company can receive are "willful" and "repeated" citations. A "willful" citation means that the company intentionally violated safety regulations or showed a disregard for employee safety. A "repeated" citation means that the company has been cited for the same violation in the past. These types of citations indicate a severe lack of concern for employee safety and can result in higher penalties and potential legal consequences for the company.
