OSHA Regulations

(Authority: OSHA & MOSH) 

Maryland has adopted the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Standards contained in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910 for General Industry, Part 1926 for Construction, and Part 1928 for Agriculture. Thus, Maryland employers are not subject to dual sets of standards. Regulations that apply to work activities at the College fall under Parts 1910 and 1926. Use the links below to access links at OSHA's web site to all of the subparts of these regulations. The name and standard number(s) for the most relevant subparts are listed under each link to help you identify and locate particular sections of interest.

In addition to the federal standards, Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) has adopted several regulations unique to Maryland. For more information about MOSH, go to
