State Plans must set workplace health and safety standards that are at least as effective as FED OSHA standards. State Plan Alliance Programs are generally modeled on the federal OSHA Alliance Program but may vary from state to state. Many State Plans implement regulations the same as FED OSHA. State Plans have the option to use standards that cover hazards not addressed by FED OSHA standards. A State Plan must conduct inspections to enforce its standards, cover state and local government workers, and operate occupational safety and health training and education programs.
