Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah is a "state plan" state; it operates a federally approved occupational safety and health plan. Utah has adopted the federal hazard communication standard by reference. Therefore, public (except federal) and private employers are subject to the state's rules. UOSH offers free workplace safety education and training programs that serve employers and their employees in the state. Consult the national section HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD for detailed information about the federal rules.
• Administration and enforcement. Hazard communication regulations in Utah are administered by UOSH.
FARM SAFETY POSTER
Farm employers must display in a location convenient to employees the "Job Safety and Health Protection" poster developed by UOSH. The poster is provided to inform employees about their protections and obligations. The poster is free and can be obtained by contacting UOSH.
