Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. North Carolina is a "state-plan" state, which means it has been approved by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to regulate occupational safety and health in private sector workplaces. It also administers the same rules for public sector workplaces. North Carolina has adopted the federal workplace hazard communication, or worker right to know, rules by reference. See the national HAZARD COMMUNICATION analysis for information about federal requirements.

Administration. The North Carolina Department of Labor (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Division is responsible for administering and enforcing the Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina.
