State Plan Responses to New Federal OSHA Standards and Federal Program Changes
Beginning June 2006

As part of an effort to make information on State Plan standards and policies/directives more readily accessible, OSHA and the Occupational Safety and Health State Plan Association (OSHSPA) have developed a system for displaying the State Plans responses to Federal standards and directives issued after May 2006. State Plan States are required to have standards, policies and procedures at least as effective as those of Federal OSHA and to respond to significant new changes to the Federal program. The following tables display how each State has responded to each new standard or directive issued. Where the State has adopted a standard or policy that is different than the Federal, the table provides either a direct link to the States standard, policy or procedure posted on a State website, or information on how to obtain a copy from the State. In addition, each new Federal standard or directive posted on OSHAs website will link back to the appropriate table on this page - 6 months after issuance. This system of dynamic links should provide consolidated access to information about new Federal and parallel State Plan standards and policies. Tables will be added for each new OSHA standard or policy directive - 6 months after issuance.

Tables may be updated periodically as revised information and links to individual State Plan standards, policies, and procedures become available.
