Hawaii requires employers to develop and implement a written safety and health program. The program must include a mechanism to investigate accidents and "near-miss" incidents. There are no federal requirements to have a formal accident prevention or accident investigation program.
See the state State Plans topic for detailed information about written safety and health program requirements.
See the federal Accidents topic for guidance for conducting accident investigations and reporting procedures.
See the state Illness and Injuries topic for information about reporting workplace fatalities and serious injuries to regulatory agencies.
The Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH) administers workplace safety and health rules in private and public sector workplaces.
