OSHA Training Washington
Washington State OSHA Training Information
Washington is one of about 22 states that have filed their own occupational safety and health plans with the Department of Labor. This means that Washington has set up the necessary mechanism to administer and police their plan. Under the plan they don’t currently require OSHA safety training for any employees in the state.
In Washington State, therefore, the primary driver behind OSHA-Accepted training is the private sector. Many companies recognize the need to improve the safety of their workplace and therefore require their workers to have either basic (OSHA 10-hour safety training), supervisory (OSHA 30-hour training), or specialized (Hazwoper, Confined Entry Space, Fall Protection, etc) training.
For some Washington State employers such training isn’t necessary mandatory but does allow for more rapid advancement.
The agency that administers the Washington State plan is the Department of Labor and Industries (DL&I), Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
