See the TABLE for hazardous materials transportation state agency inspection requirements.

Minnesota is a “state plan” state; that is, it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Both public and private sector employers are governed by state work safety requirements. The state’s requirements for safety and health inspections of general industry workplaces by regulatory agencies follow the federal rules.

See the national section INSPECTIONS for federal inspection requirements.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) regulates hazardous materials transporters in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Compliance enforces the workplace safety and health inspection requirements in Minnesota.
