West Virginia Safety Committees: What you need to know
There are no requirements in West Virginia for employers to establish occupational safety and health committees in general industry or construction workplaces. The state statute concerning workplace safety committees cannot be administered or enforced unless the state adopts regulations to implement the statute. Check with your workers’ compensation insurance provider concerning any policy requirements for a safety committee. Contact the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources for information about safety committee requirements for facilities that handle or use radioactive material.
State government agencies must also follow the federal workplace safety and health standards.
The state statute concerning qualified loss management programs cannot be administered or enforced unless the state adopts regulations to implement the statute.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces in the state. The West Virginia Division of Labor inspects state government employers in response to fatalities and employee complaints.
