VIII. State Plan Standards

The 25 States and territories having OSHA-approved occupational safety and health plans which cover the issues of maritime safety and health must revise their existing standards within six months of the publication date of a final standard, or show OSHA why there is no need for action because an existing state standard covering this area is already "at least as effective" as the revised Federal standard. Currently five states (California, Minnesota, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington) have their own state plans which cover the private sector on-shore maritime activities.

Federal OSHA enforces maritime standards off shore in all states and provides on-shore coverage of maritime activities in Federal OSHA States and in the following State plan States and territories: Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, (plan covers only State and local government employees), Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, (plan covers only State and local government employees), North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Virgin Islands, and Wyoming are All States with State plans also must extend coverage to state and local government employees engaged in maritime activities.
