State Standards

Twenty-five states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have OSHA-approved State Plans, which are required to be at least as effective as Federal OSHA, but may adopt their own standards and enforcement policies. However, most have adopted standards that are identical to Federal OSHA. Other federal standards related to agricultural operations are included for reference.

This section highlights OSHA standards, Federal Register notices (rules, proposed rules, and other notices), directives (instructions for compliance officers), and standard interpretations (official letters of interpretation of the standards) related to chromium (VI).
