Massachusetts law now provides public sector workplaces with the same safety and health protection as private industry workers. On March 9, 2018 House Bill 3952, An Act to Further Define Standards of Employee Safety that amends M.G.L. chapter 149 §6 ½ was enacted. The law updates and clarifies employee safety requirements in public sector workplaces, and is enforced by the Department of Labor Standards (DLS). This law is effective February 1, 2019
The law defines a public sector workplace to include counties, municipalities, all state agencies, quasi-public independent entities, courts, bureaus, commissions, divisions or authorities of the commonwealth, political subdivisions, and public colleges and universities.
The law requires all public sector employers to implement methods of reducing work-related injury and illness that meet the minimum requirements provided under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.
