South Carolina OSHA Training Information
The State program is administered by a Director of the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. The Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation is divided into divisions for Labor, Fire and Life Safety, and Professional and Occupational Licensing.
On December 15, 1987, the South Carolina program received 18(e) determination (final approval). Final approval of the South Carolina State Plan represented a judgment, after extensive evaluation, that the South Carolina Department of Labor was administering its State Plan in an effective manner, and resulted in formal relinquishment of concurrent Federal authority to enforce occupational safety and health standards in areas covered by the State.
The South Carolina OSH Program exercises jurisdiction over all private and public sector employers and employees within the State except private sector maritime activities; employment on military bases; and private sector employment at Area D of the Savannah River Site (power generation and transmission facilities operated by South Carolina Electric and Gas) and at the Three Rivers Solid Waste Authority; Federal government employers and employees; and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), including USPS employees, and contract employees and contractor-operated facilities engaged in USPS mail operations.
Regulations and Standards
States must set job safety and health standards that are "at least as effective as" comparable federal standards (most states adopt standards identical to federal ones). States have the option to promulgate standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standards.
South Carolina has adopted the Federal OSHA Standards verbatim, with a few exceptions. These standards including the following:
- Definition and Requirement for a National Recognized Testing Laboratory, 1910.7
- Spray Finishing using Flammable and Combustible Material, 1910.107
- Respiratory Protection, 1910.134
- Powered Industrial Trucks, 1910.178
