The state 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.

See the national Accidents topic for guidance in preventing workplace accidents and procedures to handle them when they occur.

See the state Illness and Injuries topic for information about reporting an accident that results in fatalities or multiple hospitalizations.

Public sector employers (state and local government offices, operations, and schools) are governed by workplace safety and health abatement orders (KS Stat. Ann. 44-636). Abatement orders can cite federal safety and health standards when giving notice of violations. There are no state-specific public sector rules for injury and illness or medical recordkeeping or reporting.

The U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The Kansas Department of Labor/Industrial Safety and Health Section administers inspections and abatement orders for public sector workplaces.
