The Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health is referred to as CONN-OSHA. CONN-OSHA administers Connecticut’s Public Employer Only State Plan and enforces occupational safety and health standards as they apply to all municipal and state employees. As a State Plan state, CONN-OSHA adopts and enforces standards that are at least as effective as the federal requirements.
Note: According to Connecticut State law, 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. Contractors need 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 work site. This law went into effect in 2007.
