The federal U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) governs workplace safety and health, including training requirements, in the private sector. There is no federal or state workplace safety training standard for nonfederal public sector employers in Florida.

See the national section TRAINING for information on the federal training requirements.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces occupational safety and health training requirements for private sector employers. The Florida Department of Labor and Employment Security (DLES) administers training rules for asbestos abatement in public buildings and for school custodial employees. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) administers training for general workplace asbestos activities.
