Washington — OSHA has redesigned its State Plans webpage to help simplify access to contact and jurisdictional information for each state, the agency announced Oct. 16 in its “Quick Takes” newsletter.

The revised page features a new color-coded, interactive U.S. map and numerous resource links, including one for safety and health standards and regulations.


Under the page’s “Monitoring of State Plans” resources, the agency provides links to Federal Annual Monitoring Evaluation Reports, the State Plan Policy Procedures Manual and contact information for OSHA’s federal Office of State Programs.

Visitors can click on any state or territory to see whether it has a State Plan or is under federal jurisdiction. By clicking on a State Plan state, visitors activate a pop-up box that offers a brief overview on which workers are covered under the plan, contact information for the state office and a link to the full text of the plan.

Each full-text State Plan page includes additional contact names and information, plus a full description of the state-specific plan.
