Comparison: State vs. Federal
Kentucky is a “state plan” state; that is, it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health program. However, the state has adopted the federal workplace safety and health rules for general industry, including recordkeeping, by reference. There are record retention requirements for flammable liquids that are stricter than federal rules. See the TABLE in this section for state-specific safety requirements.
See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.
Kentucky Labor Cabinet's Office of Occupational Safety and Health (KyOSH) administers and enforces workplace safety and health recordkeeping requirements in public and private sector workplaces in Kentucky.
