Alaska OSHA Training

Regulation of OSHA Training in AK

The state of Alaska operates a State OSHA program (AKOSH). The Alaska state plan was initially approved by Federal OSHA in August 10, 1973, and was granted final state plan approval on September 28, 1984. 

OSHA Regulations and Standards

In 1995, Alaska (AKOSH) began adopting most federal OSHA standards by reference, including those regulating OSHA training for employees working in general industry and construction. A limited number of state-specific standards remain in effect at this time, including Petroleum Refining and Petroleum Drilling & Production. Alaska also has a logging code that is significantly different from federal OSHA's logging standard. Alaska has adopted the federal record-keeping and reporting requirements, except that the state requires notification when one or more employees require hospitalization. The state's reporting requirements also provide for employers operating on a seasonal basis.

Jurisdiction

The state of Alaska exercises safety and health jurisdiction over most private sector employers in the state, and over public sector employers other than the federal government. Since Alaska has opted to have no jurisdiction in maritime industries, it has not adopted 29 CFR 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918 or 1919, or a state equivalent. 

Federal OSHA exercises jurisdiction over those employers not covered by the state of Alaska, to include: maritime employers such as shipyards, floating seafood processors, and longshoring; offshore oil platforms and production facilities; certain Indian Health Service hospitals and clinics; the United States Postal Service; civilian employees of the federal government; and all private and federal sector employment within the National Parks and a series of missile defense bases.

Alaska OSHA Information

The central telephone for the Enforcement Division is 1-800-770-4940. OSHA's national emergency hotline telephone number is 1-800-321-OSHA.
