New York OSHA Training Information
The New York state occupational health and safety plan supersedes the Federal OSHA program.
The State of New York OSHA applies to government employees, while Federal OSHA applies to Private industry employees.
The OSHA Outreach 10-hour and 30-hour courses above are accepted by OSHA on both the federal level and the NY state level.
The New York State Plan for Public Employee Safety and Health (PESH) promotes health and safety to more than two million state and local government employees. The New York Department of Labor is the designated agency responsible for administering the safety protocol throughout the state of New York.
The Commissioner of Labor enforces and administers all laws and rules with full authority to protect the safety and health of all state employees.
The PESH Program central office is located in Albany, New York. The program’s nine district offices are located in Albany, Binghamton, Syracuse, Rochester, Utica, Buffalo, White Plains, New York City, and Garden City.
The New York State Plan applies to all public sector employees in the state. This includes State, County, Town, and Village governments. The New York State Plan also applies to Public Authorities, School Districts, and Paid and Volunteer Fire Departments.
Federal OSHA regulation maintains jurisdiction over all private sector workplaces; federal agencies; maritime employers such as shipyards, marine terminals; military facilities; Indian sovereignty workplaces; and the U.S. Postal Service.
Regulations and Standards
States must ensure job site safety and health standards “at least as effective” as Federal OSHA standards. States may endorse standards that are more strict than the federal standards and proclaim standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standard safety training.
The PESH Program successfully adopted all Federal OSHA standards and regulations applicable to public sector employment, except for the Recordkeeping Rule, 29 CFR 1904. New York endorsed and adopted an alternative approach to recordkeeping requirements under section 801 and administrative instructions 901.
The New York Plan provides the Commissioner with the authority to develop alternative and/or state-initiated standards to ensure the safety and health of its public employees. This takes place in consultation with the Hazard Abatement Board or on their initiative.
The procedures for requiring alternative standards contain criteria for consideration of expert technical advice. It allows interested persons to request the development of any standard and participate in any hearing for the development or modification of standards.
Since October 1, 2007, PESH engaged in the rulemaking process for two state-initiated standards, as required by legislation passed by the State’s Senate and Assembly and signed by the governor.
