New Hampshire does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for the state; therefore, private sector workplaces must comply with federal occupational safety and health standards.
There are no state head protection rules for public sector employers (state and local government agencies) in general industry. See the state Personal Protective Equipment topic for additional PPE information.
The U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The New Hampshire Department of Labor/Safety and Training Division administers safety and health rules for public sector workplaces.
