About the South Carolina State Plan
The South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Plan (SCOSH) has the distinction of being one of the first programs approved by the United States Department of Labor in accordance with the guidelines of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. This was accomplished on November 30, 1972.
The State program is administered by a Director of the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. The Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation is divided into divisions for Labor, Fire and Life Safety, and Professional and Occupational Licensing.
The SCOSH plan has been considered fully operational since 1974. This status was recognized in 1975, when the Commissioner for the South Carolina Department of Labor and the OSHA Regional Administrator in Atlanta, Georgia, signed an “Operational Status Agreement”. This suspended the concurrent jurisdiction exercised by Federal officials in all areas covered by the State Plan. This was closely followed by “Certification” in 1976, when South Carolina completed all developmental steps as outlined in its plan and as required by the United States Department of Labor.
On December 15, 1987, the South Carolina program received 18(e) determination (final approval). Final approval of the South Carolina State Plan represented a judgment, after extensive evaluation, that the South Carolina Department of Labor was administering its State Plan in an effective manner, and resulted in formal relinquishment of concurrent Federal authority to enforce occupational safety and health standards in areas covered by the State.
