Safety and Health Review Commission of North Carolina

Welcome to the North Carolina Safety and Health Review Commission Home Page


The Safety and Health Review Commission is an independent administrative adjudicatory body created by North Carolina General Statute § 95-135 to hear contestments of citations, penalties, and abatement periods issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Division of the North Carolina Department of Labor. The review by the Commission is a two tiered process with an evidentiary hearing held by Administrative Law Judges throughout the state. Decisions of the Administrative Law Judges may then be appealed to the three member Commission which is appointed by the Governor. The Board's decision may be appealed first to the Superior Court and then to the North Carolina Court of Appeals and finally to the North Carolina Supreme Court.

From the home page you may access our Rules of Procedure, a list of staff, forms and links to other websites that may be useful. The Review Board and Appellate Opinions from 1994 may be accessed by clicking on the "OPINIONS" button and following the directions on the "Opinions" page.
