Oklahoma Enforcement laws & safety compliance analysis

Oklahoma Enforcement : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oklahoma does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for private sector workplaces; therefore, such workplaces must follow federal standards. The state has adopted its own workplace safety and health enforcement rules for public sector workplaces. Oklahoma has incorporated significant penalties into its hazardous materials transportation regulations. These sanctions are in addition to federal sanction. See TABLE 2 for the penalties for violations of hazardous materials transportation laws.
