Utah OSHA Training Information
The State of Utah, under 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 Utah state plan was initially approved on January 10, 1973 and was granted final state plan approval on July 16, 1985.
The Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division is part of Utah’s Labor Commission. There is one UOSH office that covers the entire state, centrally located in Salt Lake City.
The Utah State Plan applies to all public and private sector places of employment in the State, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime, Hill Air Force Base, Tooele Army Depot which includes the Tooele Chemical Demilitarization Facility, and certain agricultural related operations (field sanitation and temporary labor camps), which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction. See 29 CFR 1952.115.
Regulations and Standards
State plans must maintain job safety and heath standards that are ’at least as effective as’ comparable federal standards. States may promulgate standards that are more stringent than the comparable federal standards or promulgate standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standards.
While Utah adopts most Federal standards identically, the state periodically supplements Federal standards with additional requirements. These supplements are placed in the Utah Administrative Code R614.
