- Title:North Carolina State Plan; Change in Level of Federal Enforcement
On 10/24/91, OSHA resumed its exercise of concurrent Federal enforcement authority in the State of North Carolina by terminating the pre-existing Operational Status Agreement for the North Carolina State Plan. At that time, OSHA initiated limited Federal enforcement authority with regard to all pending and new complaints of discrimination filed either with OSHA or the State; all complaints of unsafe and unhealthful working conditions brought to OSHA's attention by employees or referred by others; and referrals from North Carolina Governor James Martin's 800 "Safety Line". In response to a further request from the State's Labor Commissioner for additional assistance, this document provides notice that Federal enforcement authority will be expanded with regard to the backlog of safety and health complaints filed with the State of North Carolina by employees in the private sector (not State and local government employees) and not yet investigated by the State. Effective March 20, 1992. For information contact James Foster (202)523-8148.
