SOUTH CAROLINA COVERAGE OF PUBLIC SECTOR EMPLOYEES
In South Carolina, the Public Sector is provided the same
protection as the Private Sector under OSHA. Public Sector and Private Sector
employers are subject to citations and penalties. The Office of OSHA conducts
inspections of both Private and Public Sector employers. These inspections help
to ensure a safe and healthy worksite, which is free of hazards that may cause
injuries and/or illnesses to employees.
The Office of OSHA Voluntary Programs (OVP) also provides free consultation and
training to both Private Sector and Public Sector employees upon request. This
Office provides the following free and confidential programs: Training and
Education; Consultation; and Palmetto Star Voluntary Protection Program.
The documents listed below are information that is currently available to the
Private and Public Sector employers and employees through the
