Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Arizona is a "state plan" state; that is, it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, state rules govern workplace safety and health in both the public and private sectors. Arizona has adopted the federal Hazard Communication Standard, or employee "right-to-know," rules for general industry and construction workplaces by reference. For information about the federal requirements, see the national section HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD.
• Administration and enforcement. The Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) administers and enforces workplace safety and health rules, including employee right to know, in the state.
