Public sector employers (state and local governments) in Arkansas are governed by state occupational safety and health requirements, including recordkeeping, which are significantly less comprehensive than federal requirements, except that public employers must follow state hazard communication recordkeeping requirements that are stricter than federal requirements. See the TABLE for state-specific safety recordkeeping requirements.
