OSHA Training Regulations and Standards
Hawaii has chosen to adopt the majority of Federal OSHA standards verbatim, including those regulating OSHA training for employees in construction and general industry. So employers required to provide employees with OSHA training in Maui should comply with that agencies regulations. However, there are some standards that, while deemed as effective as comparable federal standards, have significant differences, and there are some HIOSH standards which do not have any federal counterparts. Examples of HIOSH standards which differ from Federal OSHA standards are those for fall protection, steel erection and air contaminants. HIOSH has requirements for safety and health programs and for certification of hoisting equipment operators which have no Federal OSHA counterpart. HIOSH’s standards can be found online at the Hawaii Standards Website. HIOSH’s standards are numbered in accordance with other state regulations and can be found under Title 12, Subtitle 8.
