Utah is a “state plan” state; that is, it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program that governs all employers in both the public and private sectors. The workplace safety and health training requirements mirror federal requirements, with additional requirements that are stricter than federal for crane and derrick operators in construction and for employees who work with explosives. See the TABLE for state-specific safety training requirements.
