Agricultural labor housing

Topic index


Oregon OSHA’s agricultural labor housing rules apply to any place where there are living areas or other housing provided by someone who recruits workers to work on an agricultural establishment.

Agricultural labor housing for workers who produce or harvest farm crops must be registered with Oregon OSHA, except when the housing is occupied by members of the same family or by five or fewer unrelated people.

After housing is registered with Oregon OSHA, the operator will receive a certificate that must be displayed in a location frequented by employees. The operator of the agricultural labor housing must also provide and display a translation of the certificate in the language or languages used to communicate with the employees.
