OSHA Training and Regulatory Resources for Colorado
OSHA Safety Training in the State of Colorado is provided by both online and on-site courses provided under the OSHA Outreach Training Program. Colorado is not a State Plan state. The state’s employers operate under federal guidelines established under the OSH Act of 1970. The OSHA General Duty Clause mandates that all companies provide a safe environment for their workers.
Regulatory compliance for safety and health in the State is under the auspices of the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Worker’s Compensation Division. With few exceptions, Colorado employers are required to obtain and maintain worker’s compensation insurance for one or more employees. Worksafe Colorado, is a network of people and professionals interested in preventing workplace illnesses and injuries. Anyone with an interest or stake in these issues can be part of this initiative and participate in meetings. Community meetings are open to the public and are held every other month.
For more information on specific rights and provisions under Colorado State Law, visit the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Division of Workers’ Compensation website.
