Texas OSHA Safety Training - State Requirements

Texas is not a “state-plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health program. Consequently, occupational safety and health in the private sector workplace is governed by the federal Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act. There is no state law that governs workplace safety in the public sector (state and local agencies, school systems). Source: OSHA Directorate of State Plans

In Texas, some companies require their employees to take OSHA training in order to be qualified to perform certain duties. However, whatever industry you work for in Texas - taking an OSHA Training Course is a low cost investment that rewards you with essential job safety practices that could one day possibly save your life. Most workplace accidents and injuries are preventable, so take a proactive step towards your workplace safety.

Texas Occupational & Labor Safety State Agency

The state agency in Texas with the greatest authority in the area of workplace safety is the Texas Department of Insurance, the Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) of which has enforcement responsibility for the Texas Workers' Compensation Act (for the general provisions of that law, see Chapter 401 of the Texas Labor Code).

The Texas Department of Insurance - Division of Workers' Compensation - Workplace Safety Program provides safety and health resources to employers, employees, and other entities that support the Texas workforce to eliminate the occurrence of occupational injuries and hazardous exposures. Through its workplace safety programs, DWC helps employers, employees, insurance carriers that underwrite workers compensation insurance and the policyholders of such carriers insurance with workplace safety and health issues.

The Occupational Safety and Health Consultation (OSHCON) Program is a free service available to private Texas employers through the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation. The professional safety and health consultants across the state are available to help identify and eliminate occupational hazards in the workplace, whether or not a company carries workers' compensation insurance.

OSHA Federal Labor Data

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) - State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) Program - provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. This data is collected through two BLS programs:

  • SOII - BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
    The SOII provides estimates for nonfatal cases of work-related injuries and illnesses from 46 States and Territories that are recorded by employers under the Occupational safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) recordkeeping guidelines.
  • CFOI - BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
    The CFOI publishes data on fatal cases of work-related injuries for all States, Territories, and New York City.

For more information, check out the BLS State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities - Labor Programs and State data.

Texas OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses

According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Texas was in the transportation and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).

For more information on backovers, OSHA has a webpage that provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.

As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries

Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
