Delaware OSHA : What you need to know

  • Rules. Delaware is not a "state plan" state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health program. Consequently, the federal OSH Act governs workplace safety and health requirements in the private sector. There are no enforceable state safety and health rules for public (state and local government operations) sector workplaces.
  • Administration and enforcement. OSHA administers and enforces occupational safety and health in private sector workplaces in Delaware. DPH provides chemical information guidelines to employers.
