Regulatory enforcement and workplace inspections
Wisconsin Statute 101.055 grants representatives of the Department of Safety and Professional Services (SPS) the right to inspect any public sector place of employment in order to determine whether an employer is in compliance with the Department’s safety and health standards.
Wisconsin Administrative Code also covers public employee safety in SPS 332.
Wisconsin Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL's) —Wisconsin's public employees are protected from air contaminants per Comm 32.35, which references OSHA's PEL's from 1992, which in some instances are more stringent than current OSHA PEL's.
