New Hampshire is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Therefore, private sector workplaces are regulated by the federal fall protection standard.
Public sector (local and state government offices and operations) employers in New Hampshire are subject to state workplace safety and health requirements.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration administers and enforces private sector fall protection requirements in the state. The New Hampshire Department of Labor administers and enforces fall protection for public sector employers.
