Ohio does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, federal occupational safety and health standards govern private sector workplaces in the state. The state has adopted by reference the federal safety and health standards for asbestos in public sector (state and local government) workplaces.

In addition, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has adopted “asbestos hazard abatement” provisions for all levels of work involving asbestos, including licensure, certification, notification, and recordkeeping requirements.

· Administration and enforcement. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) administers and enforces the asbestos requirements for NESHAP-applicable projects and sources. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) administers safety and health rules for asbestos in public sector workplaces. ODH oversees the asbestos hazard abatement requirements.
