Use the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) website to determine if the state in which you live has an OSHA-approved state plan. If it does, go to the state’s website, and compare the reporting and recordkeeping requirements with the OSHA standards in 29 CFR 1904. Discuss any differences you found. If your state does not have an approved plan, research the information for any state that does have one. I live in Texas.
