OSHA Training South Carolina

The State of South Carolina operates a State OSHA Program (SCOSH). The SCOSH plan has been considered fully operational since 1974. This status was recognized in 1975, when the Commissioner for the South Carolina Department of Labor and the OSHA Regional Administrator signed an "Operational Status Agreement". This was closely followed by "Certification" in 1976, when South Carolina completed all developmental steps as outlined in its Plan and as required by the United States Department of Labor. On December 15, 1987, the South Carolina program received final approval.
