Section provided by Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I), Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) L&I has several branches, one of which is the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).

In addition to DOSH, L&I also administers several other programs that cover:
• Workplace Rights requirements related to issues such as minimum wage, breaks and more.
• Claims and Insurance for the workers’ compensation system. It is a requirement for employers to
obtain industrial insurance for their employees through L&I.
• Inspections and permits (when a particular jurisdiction does not offer that service).
• Electrical
• Pressure Vessels (for example, carbon dioxide tanks used by growers to enrich the air)
The focus in this document is worker safety (DOSH).
All employers must start by developing an “Accident Prevention Plan” (i.e., a safety manual) that is specific to their business. From there, any regulations that apply to the hazards of the job must be followed. These regulations have additional requirements such as training employees and also making sure that steps are taken to prevent any injury or illness to them during their day-to-day activities (e.g., using ventilation to prevent flammable atmospheres and providing personal protective equipment for use during pesticide handling). Most employers must at least follow a basic set of rules known as the Core Rules (WAC 296-800), and then any other regulations under WAC 296 that apply based on the specific hazards at the business. However, businesses that grow marijuana are mainly subject to the Safety Standards for Agriculture (WAC 296-307).

Processors who perform extractions need to be aware of their responsibilities when it comes to providing safety data sheets for the chemical extract that they produce (WAC 296-839 through June 1, 2015 and WAC 296-901).
