Most nonprofits are tax-exempt corporations. A nonprofit’s tax-exempt status does not make the organization exempt from safety and health regulations. Nonprofits are required to follow a wide array of safety and health-related laws and regulations.

This chapter focuses on five common L&I rules violations. No matter what your organization does, the following items relate to all nonprofits with employees in a workplace. These practices reinforce each other, resulting in a stronger safety and health culture as well as legal compliance.

Important Note: This chapter is not comprehensive of all laws a nonprofit must follow. Find safety rules, training opportunities, or schedule a free consultation on L&I’s Safety and Health webpage.
