Montana Enforcement : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Montana does not have its own approved occupational safety and health regulatory program; therefore, private sector employers are regulated by the federal standards. The Montana Occupational Safety and Health Act (MSA) and the Employee and Community Hazardous Chemical Information Act (ECHCIA) apply to public (state and local governments) sector employers and contain penalty provisions that are less strict than federal penalties.

Administration and enforcement. OSHA administers and enforces the federal workplace safety and health standards in private sector workplaces. MDLI enforces safety and health standards in public sector workplaces. DEQ enforces the hazard communication provisions of ECHCIA for public sector workplaces.
