Legal Responsibility

The State of North Dakota has adopted the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Mine Safety and Health Administrations regulations as the code for safety rules in the state. See NDAC references to other standards.

OSHA 5(a)(1) states, “ Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
