Public sector employers (state and local government offices, operations, and schools) are governed by state workplace safety and health abatement orders.

Federal OSHA has developed voluntary ergonomics guidelines for nursing homes, retail grocery stores, and poultry processing and is in the process of issuing guidelines for several other industries.
