The federal U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) governs workplace safety and health, including training requirements, in private sector workplaces. There are no state-specific workplace safety and health training rules for public sector workplaces.

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

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) administers and enforces asbestos training requirements. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces occupational safety and health rules, including training requirements.
