Any employee has the right to file a complaint with OSHA about hazards and unsafe working conditions at the Post Office. If you file a complaint be sure to inform your local union. There are very specific procedures and timelines that must be followed during the inspection and post-inspection periods. Your local will have the ability to help see that the process is followed as it meant to be.
If a complaint was filed with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and they come and do an inspection in your office, your local union has rights!
