About the Washington State Plan
The State of Washington, under an agreement with OSHA, operates an occupational safety and health program in accordance with Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The Washington State Plan was approved in January of 1973, and the state’s enabling legislation, the Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act, took effect in June of 1973. The Washington program received certification for completing all developmental steps in January of 1982.
The Washington State Program is administered by the Department of Labor and Industries (DL&I), Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH). A director, appointed by the Governor, heads the department and serves as the state plan designee. The Assistant Director for DOSH administers the day-to-day operations of the state program. The central office for DOSH is located in Tumwater, Washington. The Division has various regional and field offices located throughout the state. The DOSH program establishes policy and technical guidance, writes standards, develops internal and external training, monitors and evaluates DOSH programs, conducts inspections, and provides consultative services.
