14685 Tour three; in this issue the union submitted a Ps form 1767 to the safety office requesting anonymity; the safety office returned the safety form back to the employee without logging the complaint. The issue has been settled where the safety office will follow the regulations regarding anonymity; Section 824.631 states;
Any employee, or the representative of any employee, who believes that an unsafe or unhealthful condition exists in the workplace may do any or all of the following:
a. File a report of the condition on PS Form 1767 with the immediate supervisor and request an inspection of the alleged condition.
b. If the employee desires anonymity, file PS Form 1767 directly with the installation’s safety personnel, who will immediately give the report to the employee’s supervisor for necessary action. (In such cases, safety personnel must not disclose the name of the individual making the report.)
