Hawaii State poster revised to update OSHA.
The Hawaii OSHA poster has been updated to reflect that Hawaii’s Occupational Safety and Health state program excludes coverage of employees working on military installations.
Statutory language regarding this posting: OSHA has given approval of a change to the state of Hawaii’s Occupational Safety and Health state plan to exclude coverage of employees at all military installations. The state of Hawaii, Department of Labor and Industrial Relations requested, by letter from the Governor, that jurisdiction be relinquished to federal OSHA for conducting safety and health inspections of private sector employers within the borders of all military installations in Hawaii. OSHA amended its regulations to reflect this change in the level of federal enforcement.
Effective Date: April 2012
The new poster will be available May 10, 2012.
This is a mandatory change affecting all businesses in Hawaii. All employers must update their posters.
