OSHA Requirements and Training Resources for Salem OR
The Oregon State OSHA Program (OR-OSHA) serves as the primary regulator of OSHA training in Salem and the rest of Oregon. The Oregon State Plan was submitted on April 28, 1972, and received certification for completing all developmental steps on September 24, 1982. In May of 2005 OSHA granted final approval to the Oregon Program.
OR-OSHA Training Regulations and Standards
Over the years, Oregon has adopted a number of major safety and health standards that, while deemed as effective as comparable federal standards, also have significant differences. Oregon has also adopted a number of state-initiated rules for which there are no federal counterparts, including Forest Activity Standards, Agriculture Standards, Firefighter Standards, and Pesticide Worker Protection Standards.
Oregon OSHA’s rules are separated into divisions. Division 1 applies to all Oregon employers and contains general rules for the administration of the Oregon Safe Employment Act. Division 2 contains general industry rules; Division 3 contains construction industry rules; Division 4 contains rules relating to agricultural operations; Division 5 contains rules relating to maritime/shipyard operations, and Division 7 contains rules relating to forest activities, including logging.
State health and safety standards can be accessed on the OR-OSHA website. Links to federal OSHA training requirements for construction and general industry are available below on this page.
The state of Oregon exercises safety and health jurisdiction over most private sector employers in Salem and the rest of the state, and over public sector employers other than the federal government.
