Maryland is a “state plan” state, which means it has been given authority by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to implement a state regulatory program for occupational safety and health. Both public (state and local government offices and operations) and private sector employers have to comply with the state’s job safety and health regulations. Public sector employers may apply for a variance from the recordkeeping rules.

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

Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and the Department of State Police enforce the hazardous materials security recordkeeping requirements.

Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR) has full authority to administer and enforce the state’s health and safety regulations and to conduct workplace inspections.
