Comparison: State vs. Federal
Alabama is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act governs workplace safety and health, including training requirements, in the private sector. There are no safety and health rules for public sector (state and local government) workplaces.
See the national section TRAINING for the federal training requirements.
Federal OSHA administers and enforces occupational safety and health, including training requirements, in the private sector workplace.
