New York has a federally approved regulatory program that governs occupational safety and health for public sector workplaces only (state and local governments). Private sector employers are regulated by the federal workplace safety and health rules. New York has adopted the federal standards for recordkeeping in public sector workplaces. Consequently, both public and private sector employers in the state follow the federal rules.

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