Comparison: State vs. Federal
Arizona state agencies are permitted, and in some cases required, to conduct inspections under state safety and hazardous materials motor carrier regulations. See TABLE 1 for state agency safety inspection requirements and TABLE 2 for state agency hazardous materials motor carrier inspection requirements.
For additional information about the federal rules, see the national section INSPECTIONS.
Arizona’s workplace self-inspection requirements follow the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules. The state requirements for agency inspections of a workplace mirror federal requirements, with additional agency inspection requirements for sand and gravel operations.
The Arizona Industrial Commission’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) administers and enforces occupational safety and health inspection requirements in public and private sector workplaces.
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Department of Public Safety administer and enforce the hazardous materials transportation motor carrier regulations in Arizona.
