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.

Public sector (state government agencies, commissions, and school systems) workplaces must comply with the requirements of the state's Loss Prevention Program. Each agency will determine whether site or task-specific safety rules are necessary and what they will cover for the safety of their employees.

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 in the state. The Louisiana Office of Risk Management/Loss Prevention Unit administers the state Loss Prevention Program for public sector workplaces through periodic audits.
