NEW YORK COVERAGE OF PUBLIC SECTOR EMPLOYEES

The New York State Department of Labor's Public Employee Safety and Health (PESH) Program oversees the workplace protection of public employees at the State and local level. Protection guidelines are determined by standards set by OSHA, which enforces these guidelines in the private sector. While similar hazards can occur in public and private sector jobs, the PESH Program also addresses safety and health areas that are of specific concern to public employees. Public sector work sites range from subway tunnels and public landfills to hospitals and office buildings.

PESH Program staff investigate workplaces and inspect equipment and work practices and procedures. Public employers that violate PESH regulations receive compliance orders and can be assessed civil penalties for non-compliance. Program staff also provide safety and health consultation services to public employers.
