OSHA State Information

State Mandated OSHA Rules, Standards, and Plans

The Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act covers most private sector employers and their workers, in addition to some public sector employers and their workers in the 50 states, either directly through OSHA or through an OSHA-approved State Plan.

State Plans are OSHA-approved job safety and health programs operated by individual states instead of federal OSHA.

21 states have State Plans that cover both private and public sector workers. CT, IL, ME, NJ and NY have State Plans that cover state and local government public sector workers only.
