Connecticut has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program, but it applies to the public sector (state and municipal government offices and operations) only. This means that while public employers must follow the Connecticut Occupational Safety and Health Act (CT OSH Act), private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations) employers are regulated by the federal OSH Act. The CT OSH Act has adopted the standards of the federal OSH Act.

See the TABLE for state self-inspection requirements for hazardous materials motor carriers. See the national section INSPECTIONS to review the federal inspection requirements.

The Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA) administers and enforces the inspection requirements under the state’s employment safety and occupational health rules.

The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Connecticut Department of Public Safety (DPS) enforce the rules for hazardous materials motor carriers in Connecticut.
