Utah Occupational Safety and Health (Utah OSHA)
What We Do
The Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division, also known as UTAH OSHA is committed to accomplish its mission to achieve compliance and provide assistance with safety and health in Utah workplaces. Utah OSHA has the legislative intent to implement, establish, and enforce occupational safety and health standards to ensure the safety and health of workers in the state of Utah.
Utah OSHA approaches this goal by providing:
- Consultation services
- Voluntary protection programs (VPP)
- Safety and health achievement recognition programs (SHARP)
- Other cooperative and outreach initiatives to private and public sector employers
The goal is to compliment and enhance employer compliance with occupational safety and health standards in the state, in addition to other compliance program enforcement activities. Safety and health requirements, as well as employer and employee responsibilities, are contained in the Utah Occupational Safety and Health Act. Additionally, Utah incorporated by reference Federal Standards, adopting Title 29 Code of Federal Regulation for General Industry (CFR 1910) and Construction Industry (CFR 1926).
Other federal regulations incorporated by reference include 29 CFR 1904 (Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness) and 29 CFR 1908 (Consultation Cooperative Agreement). Employers must become familiar with all those regulations, as well as current regulations prescribed by the Utah Occupational Safety and Health Act, found in Chapter 6, Title 34A of the Utah Code Annotated.
