Connecticut has its own occupational safety and health regulatory program, the Connecticut Occupational Safety and Health Act (CT Gen. Stat. Sec. 31-367et seq.), approved by OSHA, that applies only to public sector workplaces (state and local government employers). The state's rules mirror federal rules. The state program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Labor's Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA).

Stat. Sec. 31-53b). Training must be documented with a student course completion card.
