North Carolina OSHA Training Information
The North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL) is charged with promoting the “health, safety and general well-being” of more than 4 million workers in the state. A commissioner of labor is elected every four years as head of the department and also serves on the Council of State. The commissioner has broad regulatory and enforcement powers to carry out the department’s duties and responsibilities. The department is divided into three divisions: Administration, Occupational Safety and Health, and Standards and Inspections. The Occupational Safety and Health Division (OSH) is responsible for administering the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The North Carolina Department of Labor exercises jurisdiction over all private and public sector employers and employees within the State, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime activities, employment on Indian reservations, railroad employment, and enforcement on military bases, and the American National Red Cross, which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction.
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.
North Carolina has a limited number of state-specific standards.
NCDOL state specific rules are contained in Title 13 of the North Carolina Administrative Code.
