Comparison: State vs. Federal
Maryland is a “state plan” state, which means it has a federally approved regulatory program for occupational safety and health. Maryland has adopted the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act’s (OSH Act) worker training rules by reference.
For information on federal training requirements, see the national analysis TRAINING.
The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) Program administers and enforces the state’s occupational safety and health program, including training requirements, for both public and private sector workplaces in the state.
