Comparison: State vs. Federal
Florida does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for private sector workplaces. Therefore, the federal rules govern workplace safety and health in the private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations).
There are no state workplace safety and health rules for public sector workplaces.
See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces occupational safety and health requirements for private sector employers in Florida.
