Occupational Safety and Health Resource Locator
Twenty-four (24) states are covered entirely by the federal OSHA program.
The Division of Occupational Safety and Health administers and enforces the 1973 Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina, a broadly inclusive law which applies to most private sector employment in the State and to all agencies of state and local government. North Carolina currently conducts one of 26 state-administered occupational safety and health programs in the nation. The Occupational Safety and Health Division, through its East and West Compliance Bureaus, conducts approximately 5,000 inspections a year. The division conducts investigations of complaints made by workers, investigations of work-related accidents and deaths, general schedule inspections of randomly picked firms, and follow-up inspections of firms previously cited for OSHA violations. Inspection schedules are coordinated through the Planning, Statistics and Information Management Bureau.
