HCG Municipal Services Workshop
New OSHA Requirements for the Public Sector
A training by the MA Department of Labor Standards
Beginning February 1, 2019, changes to M.G.L. c149 §6 ½, Adoption of Regulations for the Projection of Employees Consistent with Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act; Occupational Health and Safety Hazard Advisory Board, go into effect. The amendments clarify employee safety requirements in public sector workplaces.
HCG has secured Michael Flanagan, Safety and Health Programs Manager, Department of Labor Standards, to explain the new law and available resources for municipal officials.
He will also discuss how to schedule an inspection for your municipality and provide recommendations for compliance.
The training will be held on Tuesday, December 4th, at 1 PM in the historic Courthouse Conference Room, 99 Main Street, Northampton. We encourage DPW Directors, Select Board members, Facility Managers, Police and Fire Chiefs, Mayors, Town Administrators, and municipal and school administrators to attend.
Please register by Monday, November 26th.
