Commission Develops New Online Form and Email Address for Submitting FOIA Requests

The Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission has developed an online form for submitting Freedom of Information Act requests to the Commission. The form is a downloadable PDF file that requesters can fill out on their computer and then submit to the OSHRC FOIA Request Service Center either by fax or regular mail, or by email to its new address at oshrc_foia@oshrc.gov.

Commission Chairman Thomasina Rogers applauded the measure, "This is one step further in our effort to maximize public access to information and increase efficiency through the use of technology."

OSHRC anticipates that the form will streamline the agency's FOIA process by guiding requesters through all the information necessary to process their request up front, minimizing the need for Service Center personnel to clarify requests and solicit more information. The new FOIA form can be accessed on OSHRC's website at https://www.oshrc.gov/foia. Any questions about the form, or FOIA processing in general, may be directed to the FOIA Request Service Center at (202) 606-5724 or oshrc_foia@oshrc.gov.
