Comparison: State vs. Federal
Utah is a “state-plan” state, which means it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. State law governs occupational safety and health in both the public and private sector workplaces, except for domestic employment. Utah has adopted the federal recordkeeping standards by reference.
See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.
The Utah Labor Commission’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (UOSH) administers workplace safety and health recordkeeping requirements in private and public sector workplaces.
