Minnesota OSHA AWAIR Program Revision – New NAICS Requirements

In November 2008, the Minnesota OSHA adopted the new NAICS classification to determine if employers are required to comply with A Workplace Accident and Injury Reduction (AWAIR) Program. Employers that fall within the listed NAICS codes are required to prepare and maintain a written AWAIR program.

Because the shift to the NAICS system may make some employers subject to AWAIR that previously were not subject, a “grace period” have been established for companies to develop and implement their written programs. All companies subject to AWAIR must have their program established no later than May 3, 2009.
