Delaware is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health program. Consequently, the federal rules govern workplace safety and health requirements, including recordkeeping, in the private sector. There are no enforceable safety and health recordkeeping rules for public (state and local government operations) sector workplaces.

See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces occupational safety and health recordkeeping in private sector workplaces in Delaware. The Department of Safety and Homeland Security enforces the hazardous materials transportation regulations.
