Under the terms of the 1978 Court Order in AFL-CIO v. Marshall, Compliance staffing levels (benchmarks) necessary for a "fully effective"
enforcement program were required to be established for each State operating an approved State plan. In September 1984 Wyoming, in conjunction with
OSHA, completed a reassessment of the levels initially established in 1980 and proposed revised compliance staffing benchmarks of 6 safety and 2
health compliance officers. After opportunity for public comment and service on the AFL-CIO, the Assistant Secretary approved these revised staffing
requirements on June 27, 1985.
