New Hampshire Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

New Hampshire is not a "state plan" state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, the federal OSH Act governs occupational safety and health requirements in the private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations) workplace.

The state’s Safety and Health of Employees statute governs safety and health requirements in the public sector (government offices and operations) workplace. Public sector employers in the state are excluded from coverage under federal workplace safety and health rules. Public sector employers may use federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) recordkeeping forms to meet state injury and illness recordkeeping requirements. There are no additional recordkeeping rules. See the TABLE in this section for state-specific safety requirements.

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

OSHA administers and enforces occupational safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The New Hampshire Department of Labor (NHDOL) administers and enforces both occupational safety and health for public sector employers and the written safety program requirements under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
