· Rules. Because Virginia is a "state plan" state (it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program), private and public sector employers are subject to state workplace safety and health requirements. The state has adopted the federal worker right-to-know requirements in their entirety. See the national section HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD for detailed information.
· Administration and enforcement. VOSH administers and enforces all occupational safety and health rules, including worker right-to-know requirements, in Virginia.
