See TABLE 1 for state agency hazardous materials transportation inspection requirements, and TABLE 2 for self-inspection safety inspections. See the national section INSPECTIONS to review the federal inspection requirements.

Louisiana does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, private sector employers are governed by federal job safety and health requirements. However, private sector workplaces with more than 15 employees must conduct monthly inspections of facilities under the state workers’ compensation rules. Public sector workplaces must conduct facility and equipment inspections as part of a loss prevention program; there are no additional state safety and health rules that govern public sector (state or local government) workplaces.

The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DPS) and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) enforce the requirements for hazardous materials motor carriers in Louisiana.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration enforces the federal safety and health inspection requirements at all private sector workplaces in Louisiana. The Louisiana Workforce Commission administers the operational safety plan self-inspection requirements for private sector workplaces. The Office of Risk Management (ORM) administers the loss prevention program’s self-inspection requirements for public sector workplaces.
