National Summary

This topic covers OSHA’s requirements for written safety and health plans. These plans are required for more than 2 dozen specific workplace activities and more than a dozen chemicals. There are 16 general industry activities that require written plans or procedures and 10 written plan requirements for construction activities.

In addition, approximately 2 dozen states require written general health and safety plans for certain industries.
