Welcome to the North Carolina Occupational 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 Commission'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.
