Virginia Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Virginia is a “state plan” state, which means that it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Therefore, both public (government offices and operations) and private (private businesses and nonprofit organizations) sector employers are governed by state occupational safety and health regulations. The state has adopted by reference the federal rules and has adopted rules that are stricter than federal standards for confined spaces for the telecommunications industry. See the TABLE in this section for state-specific safety requirements.
