OSHA Standards

State Standards

Twenty-five states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have OSHA-approved State Plans and have adopted their own standards and enforcement policies. For the most part, these states adopt standards that are identical to Federal OSHA. However, some states have adopted different standards applicable to this topic or may have different enforcement policies.

This section highlights OSHA standards, Federal Registers (rules, proposed rules, and notices), preambles to final rules (background to final rules), directives (instructions for compliance officers), and standard interpretations (official letters of interpretation of the standards) related to manufacturing and construction in the concrete and concrete products industry. The manufacturing sector must comply with OSHA's General Industry standards (29 CFR 1910) and the construction sector of this industry must comply with OSHA's Construction standards (29 CFR 1926).
