Georgia Training : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Georgia is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Therefore, the federal OSH Act governs occupational safety and health requirements, including training, in the private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations). Georgia has adopted hazard communication training requirements for public sector workplaces that are more detailed than federal requirements. See the TABLE for the safety training requirements.

OSHA administers and enforces private sector workplace safety and health rules in Georgia. The Georgia Department of Labor (DOL) administers and enforces workplace safety and health requirements, including training, in the public sector.
