What you need to know
Louisiana does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for the state; therefore, private sector workplaces must comply with federal occupational safety and health standards.
Public sector (state government agencies, commissions, and school systems) workplaces must comply with the requirements of the state’s Loss Prevention Program (LA Rev. Stat. Sec. 39:1543). Each agency will determine whether site or task-specific safety rules are necessary and what they will cover for the safety of their employees.
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 in the state. The Louisiana Office of Risk Management/Loss Prevention Unit administers the state Loss Prevention Program for public sector workplaces through periodic audits.
