Who Enforces the OSHA Regulations in Connecticut?

Worker safety for private companies needing OSHA training in Hartford, Connecticut is regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Connecticut operates a state OSHA program (CONN-OSHA), exclusively for state and local (e.g. municipal) employers. 

OSHA Regulations and Standards in Connecticut:

Federally regulated employers located in Connecticut are governed by the federal OSHA health and safety standards found in the 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These include, but are not limited to, the OSHA general industry standards in 29CFR1910, maritime standards in 29CFR Parts 1915, 1917 and 1918construction standards in 29CFR1926, and agricultural standards in 29CFR1928. Private sector employers needing OSHA training in Connecticut should comply with these regulations.

Connecticut OSHA State Laws for the Construction Industry:

The OSHA 10 hour construction course is required for all employees of any public building, project paid for in whole or part by state funding, or any of its agencies, where the total cost is over $100,000.

Each contractor needs to furnish proof that all employees have taken the OSHA 10 hour construction course within 30 days of being awarded the contract. Employees who have not completed the course are subject to removal from the worksite.

As in virtually all situations, the OSHA 10 hour course completion card or other proof, like a completion certificate, is required to show compliance. The law went into effect in 2007.

Special circumstances for Connecticut:  The OSHA 10 hour construction course must be re-taken every 5 years. There are some exceptions for the requirement that include: site work; roads or bridges; rail lines; parking lots; or underground water, sewer or drainage systems, including pump houses or other utility systems.

Already required by five states in the Northeast, the OSHA 10 Hour Course has become an "industry standard" for both the public and private sector projects. Many contractors in Connecticut also encourage supervisors to take the OSHA 30-hour course in order to better manage their 10-hour-trained workforces.
