Does State Plan have the Same Reporting and RecordKeeping Requirements as Federal OSHA?

As of January 1, 2015, establishments located in states under federal OSHA jurisdiction began complying with the new reporting and recordkeeping requirements. By June 1, 2015, establishments located in OSHA-approved State Plans reviewed their current reporting and recordkeeping requirements to determine how they compared to federal OSHA, and began the process of: adopting OSHA’s new reporting requirements, retaining their current reporting requirements if they were at least as effective as OSHA’s, or adopting more stringent reporting requirements.
