What you need to know
Kansas does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, federal occupational safety and health standards govern private sector workplaces in the state.
Public sector employers (state and local government offices, operations, and schools) are governed by workplace safety and health abatement orders (KS Stat. Ann. 44-636). Abatement orders can cite federal safety and health standards when giving notice of violations. There are no state-specific public sector rules for hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER).
The U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The Kansas Department of Labor/Industrial Safety and Health Section administers inspections and abatement orders for public sector workplaces.
