MOSH Compliance Unit

A major component of the MOSH program, the Compliance unit is the enforcement arm of MOSH. The Compliance unit is responsible for ensuring that employers meet their duty under the MOSH Act to provide a safe and healthful workplace for employees. The Compliance unit is managed from its headquarters in Hunt Valley and maintains regional offices in Easton and Hagerstown. We have partnered with The Maryland Emergency Management Agency's (MEMA) Maryland Joint Operations Center (MJOC) to take our emergency calls (1-888-257-6674) involving fatalities and Imminent danger situations. This helps ensure that our Compliance staff is available around the clock to respond appropriately to emergency situations.

The first inspection priority is the investigation of a fatality or catastrophe. Employers are required to report these accidents to MOSH within 8 hours. The next priority is serious accidents and valid employee complaints, followed by targeted industry inspections of high hazard industries, and finally, general schedule inspections.

Violations may result in the imposition of civil penalties for serious hazards. When warranted, cases are referred to the State's Attorney for possible criminal prosecution.
