Iowa OSHA Training Information
The Iowa Division of Labor Services, Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed by the Iowa Legislature and signed by the Governor on April 20, 972. On September 14, 1976, the Assistant Secretary certified that Iowa had satisfactorily completed all development steps.
The Assistant Secretary determined that the State of Iowa’s occupational safety and health program is at least as effective as the Federal program in providing safe and healthful employment and places of employment and meets the criteria for final State Plan approval.
The Iowa State Plan applies to all public and private sector places of employment in the State with the exception of private sector maritime activities; marine terminals; longshoring; federal government-owned, contractor-operated military/munitions facilities; bridge construction projects spanning the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers between Iowa and other states; federal government employers and employees; and the United States Postal Service; which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction. The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment Standards Administration exercises jurisdiction with respect to field sanitation and temporary labor camps.
Regulations and Standards
States must set job safety and health standards that are “at least as effective” as Federal OSHA standards. States have the option to promulgate standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standards. Iowa has a limited number of state-specific standards.
