Minnesota ERTK

Based on Employers policies and MNOSHA's Employers Guide to Developing and ERTK Program.

  • Employee Right-to-Know Minnesota Rule 5206 is enforced by MNOSHA instead of the Federal Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200). Employee Right-to-Know covers harmful physical agents and infectious agents as well as hazardous substances and requires annual refresher training in addition to initial trainging.  The rule covers cmployees in general industry, construction, maritime  operations, and farming operations with more than 10 employees or a temporary labor camp.


  • Permissible Exposure Limits (29 CFR 1910.1000- Air Contaminants). In 1989, federal OSHA revised its PELs for substances that are not covered by separate standards.  (These are available on the MNOSHA website)


  • Confined spaces for general industry, Minnesota OSHA has adopted the Federal Permit-Required Confined Spaces standard, 29 CFR 1910.146. for the construction industry, Minnesota OSHA enforces Minnesota Rules 5207.0300-0304.


  • Employers in general industry must comply with 29 CFR 1910.147, Control of Hazardous Energy.
