Oklahoma Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Oklahoma is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health plan. Therefore, the federal OSH Act governs occupational safety and health requirements in the private sector workplace. Public sector employers are governed by state workplace safety and health recordkeeping rules, which are stricter than federal standards. Public sector employers may use the state’s injury and illness recordkeeping forms. The state has adopted the safety and health recordkeeping rules for all other workplace activities by reference. See the TABLE in this section for state-specific safety and health recordkeeping requirements.
