There are twenty-eight OSHA-approved State Plans, operating state-wide occupational safety and health programs. State Plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA's and may have different or more stringent requirements.
This section highlights some of the OSHA standards, Federal Register notices (rules and proposed rules), preambles to final rules (background to final rules), directives (instructions for compliance officers) related to brownfields.
Operations at brownfields must comply with either all applicable General Industry standards (29 CFR 1910) or all applicable Construction standards (29 CFR 1926), depending on the nature of work at the site. In addition, if a site is determined to be a "hazardous waste site," that site must comply with the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard, as listed below.
General Industry (29 CFR 1910)
Construction Industry (29 CFR 1926)
