Texas Training : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Texas does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program; therefore, private sector employers are governed by the federal hazard communication requirements. Public sector employers in Texas must follow the state hazard communication requirements. For information on public sector occupational safety requirements, see the state analyses OSHA and HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD. See the TABLE for the state-specific safety training requirements.

OSHA administers and enforces occupational safety and health training requirements for the private sector in Texas.
