Idaho Emergency Preparedness laws & safety compliance analysis

Idaho Emergency Preparedness: What you need to know

Idaho is not a "state-plan" state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Private sector (businesses and nonprofit organizations) employers are governed by federal OSHA's emergency preparedness regulations. The state has adopted safety and health rules for public sector (state and local government offices and operations) workplaces that are substantially less stringent than federal rules (ID Admin. Code 17.10.01). The state has also adopted voluntary safety and health compliance guidelines for emergency exit routes in public sector workplaces; state safety and health inspectors use the guidelines as a resource for inspecting public sector workplaces (ID Admin. Code 17.10.01.006).
