OSHA State Differences Summaries and Checklists


This unique guide, is presented in two parts:
The OSHA State Differences Summaries identify all the important, and often complex, regulatory differences from similar federal rules with which facilities in a particular state must comply. These detailed OSHA guideline summaries make it feasible to identify the full range of health and safety compliance challenges facing a facility.
The corresponding OSHA State Differences Checklists are written to relate directly to their federal OSHA inspection checklist counterparts. This ensures minimum misinterpretation across federal and state issues. State OSHA regulatory differences that have no similar federal requirements are also included.
Each state difference is classified in terms of how it can best be used for ongoing compliance management and support of health and safety auditing, checking, and corrective action efforts.
OSHA State Differences Summaries and Checklists are used by attorneys, senior EHS management, corporate EHS auditors, consultants, facility compliance personnel, and government agencies.
