Kentucky has adopted the federal requirements for written safety plans for specific activities (e.g., bloodborne pathogens exposure control plan, hazard communication plan) and for specific hazardous substances in both private and public sector workplaces.
Employers insured for workers’ compensation under the Kentucky Employer’s Mutual Insurance (KEMI) program must follow the provisions of KEMI’s workplace accident and injury reduction plan. See the Workers’ Compensation analysis for more information.
The Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Occupational Safety and Health Program (KyOSH) governs both public and private sector workplaces, except for the Tennessee Valley Authority and federal facilities. KEMI administers the workplace safety and loss prevention insurance programs.
