Agricultural Safety & Health Bureau

In 1989 the General Assembly enacted the Migrant Housing Act of North Carolina, establishing a single set of standards for inspecting all agricultural migrant housing. Since then, NCDOL has conducted an annual housing registration, inspection and compliance program. The NCDOL Agricultural Safety and Health Bureau conducts pre-occupancy inspections of migrant housing. Housing must meet occupational safety and health standards and specific standards for heat, fire protection and kitchen sanitation. Migrant housing should be registered at least 45 days prior to occupancy. Housing that does not meet the standards can result in fines and abatement requirements for the owners.
