Pennsylvania Training : What you need to know
Comparison: State vs. Federal
Pennsylvania 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 (OSH Act) governs workplace safety and health, including training requirements, in the private sector in Pennsylvania. The state has adopted its own hazard communication rules for public sector (state and local government) workplaces with some provisions that are stricter than federal rules. See the TABLE for state-specific safety training requirements.
