Comparison: State vs. Federal
Virginia has adopted by reference the federal workplace safety and health training requirements, except that Virginia has adopted training rules for operating covered vehicles (i.e., vehicles with obstructed view to the rear) that are stricter than federal rules. See the TABLE for state-specific safety training requirements.
For information on the federal training requirements, see the national analysis TRAINING.
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) administers and enforces workplace safety and health training rules.
