Who Enforces the OSHA Regulations in Massachusetts?

Worker safety for private companies in Massachusetts is regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Massachusetts does not operate an approved state OSHA program for public employees at the state or political sub-division (e.g. municipal) level.

OSHA Regulations and Standards in Massachusetts:

Regulated employers located in Massachusetts are governed by the federal OSHA health and safety standards found in the 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These include, but are not limited to, the OSHA general industry standards in 29CFR1910, maritime standards in Parts 1915, 1917 and 1918construction standards in 29CFR1926, and agricultural standards in 29CFR1928

Massachusetts OSHA State Laws for the Construction Industry:

All employees to be employed at a worksite needs to complete the OSHA 10 hour construction course before beginning work on the worksite.

Any employee found on a worksite subject to this section without documentation of successful completion of the OSHA 10 hour course shall be subject to immediate removal.

The Massachusetts law specifically says "At least 10 hours" so the OSHA 30 hour construction course would also enable the worker to meet these requirements. The law went into effect in 2004.

Already required by five states in the Northeast the OSHA 10 Hour Course has become an "industry standard" for both the public and private sector projects. Many contractors in Massachusetts also encourage supervisors to take the OSHA 30-hour course in order to better manage their 10-hour-trained workforces.

OSHA Jurisdiction in Massachusetts:

Federal OSHA exercises jurisdiction over most private employers required to conduct OSHA training in Massachusetts. Federal employers in Massachusetts also operate under the jurisdiction of federal OSHA. There are two OSHA offices located in the eastern part of the state:

North Boston Area OSHA Office Shattuck Office Center 138 River Road, Suite 102 Andover, MA 01810 (978)837-4460

South Boston Area OSHA Office 639 Granite Street, 4th Floor Braintree, MA 02184 (617) 565-6924
