State Specific OSHA Requirements for Veterinary Hospitals

What Does Your State Require?

OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was established to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for employees across the nation. However, some states have chosen to develop their own OSHA-approved state plans tailored to their unique needs and circumstances. Federal OSHA covers most private sector employers and employees as well as certain federal government employees in all 50 states and outlying US owned states.

State OSHA plans, on the other hand, cover private sector and state/local government employees within the states that have chosen to establish their own plans. These state plans must be at least as effective as federal OSHA standards, but they can develop and enforce standards that are more stringent than federal OSHA standards if they choose to do so. Are you aware of additional requirements and regulations your state may have? In this E-Book, we break down whether each state has their own plans in addition to federal as well as any actions that may need to be taken in order to be OSHA and safety compliant.
