West Virginia is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Federal rules govern workplace safety and health, including recordkeeping, in the private sector (private businesses, commercial establishments, and nonprofit organizations). Most state government workplaces and operations, except the Department of Corrections, Department of Health, and the legislature, are subject to the state safety and health recordkeeping requirements, which mirror federal rules. There is no workplace safety coverage of county or municipal employers.

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

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia (PSC) enforces the rules for permitting motor carriers.

The West Virginia Department of Commerce’s Division of Labor administers and enforces state government workplace health and safety requirements.
