State-specific OSHA laws
States can set their own health and safety guidelines, but they must at least be as effective as OSHA standards that the federal government has set. In fact, Section 18 of the OSH Act strongly supports states and territories that want to develop and operate their own occupational safety standards.
States that have their own OSHA laws include Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, U.S. Virgin Islands, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.
