New Hampshire Enforcement laws & safety compliance analysis

New Hampshire Enforcement : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. New Hampshire is not a "state plan" state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, the federal rules govern occupational safety and health requirements in the private sector workplace. The state's Public Employee Safety and Health Law governs safety and health requirements in the public sector (state, county, and municipal governments) workplace. The state penalty requirements for public sector workplaces are less strict than federal rules. See TABLE 1 for penalties for violations of safety laws.
