Hawaii OSHA Training Information
The State of Hawaii, under an agreement with OSHA, operates an occupational safety and health program in accordance with Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The designated agency for the administration of this program is the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR). Within the DLIR, the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH) is responsible for both enforcement and consultation programs. HIOSH is headquartered in the State capital of Honolulu.
The Hawaii State Plan applies to all private and public sector places of employment in the State, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime , and land that is exclusive Federal jurisdiction, which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction. See 29 CFR 1952.314.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.
Regulations and Standards
Hawaii has chosen to adopt the majority of Federal OSHA standards verbatim. However, there are some standards that, while deemed as effective as comparable federal standards, have significant differences, and there are some HIOSH standards which do not have any federal counterparts. Examples of HIOSH standards which differ from Federal OSHA standards are those for fall protection, steel erection and air contaminants. HIOSH has requirements for safety and health programs and for certification of hoisting equipment operators which have no Federal OSHA counterpart. HIOSH’s standards can be found online at the Hawaii Standards Website.
HIOSH’s standards are numbered in accordance with other state regulations and can be found under Title 12, Subtitle 8.
