On March 9, 2018, Governor Baker signed a bill updating M.G.L. chapter 149§6½, requiring all public sector employers to meet the minimum requirements provided under OSHA to reduce work-related injury and illness.
In short, all public employers, which includes MA public schools, are required to be compliant with OSHA safety standards by February 1, 2019.
The Laboratory Safety Institute (LSI) has created a detailed one-day short course to help navigate and understand the new responsibilities and requirements of Massachusetts STEM educators in the public sector.
How to Comply with MA’s New OSHA Regulations will address:
- The OSHA lab standard and additional lab regulations
- The chemical hygiene officer's responsibilities
- Chemical hygiene plan development and implementation
- Chemical hazards and control methods
- ...and more

In addition to the listed topics, the course will also go further and discuss what the chemical hygiene officer's responsibilities include beyond the OSHA lab standard, while also providing numerous resources to assist and guide them with the new requirements.
The course is created to encourage discussion, with scheduled discussion time and Q & A periodically throughout the day. This is to ensure that all attendees have the opportunity to have all of their questions and concerns addressed.
The course is offered at our classroom in Natick, MA and also available via webinar.
