Wisconsin Training : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Wisconsin is not a “state-plan” state; that is, it does not have its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act governs occupational safety and health, including training requirements, in the private sector (businesses and nonprofit organizations). The state has adopted the federal safety and health rules by reference for public sector (state and municipal offices and operations, school systems, commissions, etc.) workplaces. The public sector is also covered by the state Employees’ Right-to-Know Law, which has its own two-tier hazardous substances training program. See the TABLE for the state-specific safety training requirements. For information on private sector workplace safety training requirements, see the national analysis TRAINING.

Federal OSHA administers and enforces worker safety and health programs for private sector employers in Wisconsin. Public sector workplace safety and health is governed by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (SPS).
