On March 9, 2018 Governor Baker amended M.G.L. Chapter 149 §6 ½ to clarify employee safety requirements in public sector workplaces. These laws are enforced by the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS) and went into effect on February 1, 2019.
The amendments clarify that:
Massachusetts requirements are as strict as OSHA. The original Mass General Laws are still in effect. 454 CMR 25.00 requires all public sector employers to comply with OSHA regulations.
