About the Puerto Rico State Plan
The Puerto Rico Occupational Safety and Health Administration (PR OSHA), initiated operations in 1978, after the enactment of Act No. 16 of August 5, 1975, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of Puerto Rico, as amended by Act No. 116 of June 24, 1977; Act No. 32 of July 26, 1991; and Act No. 281 of December 19, 2002.
It is similar in most respect to the Federal Act. The purpose of the Act is to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for all employees in Puerto Rico authorizing the Secretary of Labor to prescribe and enforce safety and health standards, rules and regulations developed or adopted; by assisting and encouraging employers and employees in their efforts to guarantee safe and healthful working conditions; by providing for scientific research, information, education and training and the development of statistic in the field of occupational safety and health. In addition, the Puerto Rico Act requires that a Spanish language version of OSHA standards shall be filed with the Department of State no later than two (2) years after the original filing date. All Citation and Notification of Penalty is issued to the employer in both languages, English and Spanish.
