Regulations and Standards
States must set job safety and health standards that are “at least as effective as” comparable federal standards. (Most States adopt standards identical to federal ones.) States have the option to promulgate standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standards.
Tennessee has a limited number of state-specific standards (or standards that were adopted with requirements different from those of federal OSHA).
