Regulation of OSHA Training on Oahu

Who regulates worker safety for businesses needing OSHA training on Oahu? The State of Hawaii operates a State OSHA program (HIOSH). So all affected employers needing to provide OSHA training on Oahu must comply with this agencies regulations. Hawaii’s Occupational Safety and Health Plan was approved on January 4, 1974, and was certified on May 9, 1978 as having completed all specified developmental steps. On April 30, 1984 the State was granted final approval and concurrent Federal enforcement authority was relinquished under Section 18(e) of the Act.


There are two agencies with primary responsibility for oversight of regulations for OSHA training on Oahu / Hawaii. The Hawaii State Plan applies to all private and public sector places of employment in the State, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime, and land that is exclusive Federal jurisdiction, which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction.

HI 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 the federal regulations for OSHA training apply to regulated businesses and organizations on Oahu and elsewhere in Hawaii. 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.
