Enough On Fed OSHA, Here’s What to Know About the State OSH Plans
22 states have OSHA-approved state plans that cover both private and state and local government workers. State plans have their own penalty reduction policies and procedures that may differ from OSHA but must at least as effective. Whiles the regulations are often like OSHA, they are not identical – employers in state-plan states cannot assume that complying with federal OSHA regulations will suffice. Keeping up with the changes in policies and procedures in state plan states can also be challenging for employers. We will take a close look at state plans in MI, NC, OR, WA, IN, IA, TN, and KY.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

• The differences between state and federal OSHA
• Key updates in state-plan regulations
• Changes in policies and procedures in those state-plan states
• Compliance tips for employers that have employees working in multiple states
