Georgia Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Georgia is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Therefore, the federal rules govern workplace safety and health in the private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations). Public sector (state government offices and operations) employers in Georgia are governed by the requirements of the state’s Right-to-Know Act, which includes requirements for worker hazard communication training records that are more strict than federal rules. See TABLE 1 for state-specific safety recordkeeping requirements.

See TABLE 2 for state-specific hazardous materials motor carrier recordkeeping requirements.

See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces occupational health and safety in the private sector in Georgia. The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) administers and enforces the state’s public sector hazard communication requirements.

The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) enforces the hazardous materials transportation regulations in Georgia.
