Alaska OSHA Training Information
The state of Alaska exercises safety and health jurisdiction over most private sector employers in the state, and over public sector employers other than the federal government.
Federal OSHA exercises jurisdiction over those employers not covered by the state of Alaska, to include: maritime employers such as shipyards, floating seafood processors, and longshoring; offshore oil platforms and production facilities; certain Indian Health Service hospitals and clinics; the United States Postal Service; civilian employees of the federal government; and all private and federal sector employment within the National Parks and a series of missile defense bases.
Regulations and Standards
In 1995, Alaska (AKOSH) began adopting most federal OSHA standards by reference. A limited number of state-specific standards remain in effect at this time, including Petroleum Refining and Petroleum Drilling & Production. Alaska also has a logging code that is significantly different from federal OSHA’s logging standard.
Alaska has adopted the federal recordkeeping and reporting requirements, except that the state requires notification when one or more employees require hospitalization. The state’s reporting requirements also provide for employers operating on a seasonal basis.
