New Hampshire does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for the state; therefore, private sector workplaces must comply with federal occupational safety and health standards.
Injury and illness recordkeeping. The state has adopted its own injury and illness recordkeeping rule for public sector employers (state and local government operations) in general industry. The state rule is substantially less comprehensive than federal rules.
Reporting fatalities or multiple hospitalizations. Within 8 hours after its occurrence, an employment accident which is fatal to one or more employees or which results in the hospitalization of three or more employees must be reported to the New Hampshire Department of Labor in person or by telephone at 603-271-6297, 271-6850, 271-3699, or 271-3170.
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 New Hampshire Department of Labor/Safety and Training Division administers safety and health rules for public sector workplaces.
