How Does The Maryland Office Of Occupational Safety And Health Operate?

The MOSH strives to ensure that Maryland workplaces are safe and healthful through the use of enforcement, training, and consultation strategies. In addition to the federal standards, MOSH has adopted several regulations unique to Maryland.

MOSH covers every Maryland employer in a business, trade, commercial or industrial activity, who has one or more employees, including State and local governments. The MOSH Act does not apply to working conditions of employees of the federal government or any agency or instrumentality of a federal government agency. Those workers are covered under the Federal OSHA program.
