Alaska is one of 22 states and jurisdictions operating a complete State OSHA plan that covers both private sector and State and local government employees. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act States are encouraged to develop and operate their own job safety and health programs. OSHA approves and monitors State plans and provides up to 50% of an approved plan’s operating costs.
There is a mandatory-to-post change to Alaska’s Safety and Health Protection on the Job (OSH) posting included on the Alaska All-On-One™ Poster. The change concerns Program Complaint contact information. Specifically, the address, suite number, zip code and telephone number have changed. Employees must use the updated contact information to make a complaint regarding the State administration to Federal OSHA. Additionally, only the US DOL OSHA has jurisdiction with respect to private employment discrimination complaints.
The Alaska Unemployment Insurance – Notice to Employees has also been updated to reflect a change to the web address for filing online UI claims.
