OSHA Proposes Approval of State Plan to Protect Government Workers in Maine

The plan would protect the safety and health of state and local government workers

OSHA has published a proposed rulemaking to approve a new occupational safety and health plan for Maine state and local employees.

“The Maine Department of Labor is to be commended for taking this step forward to provide protection for these workers,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels.  “This should serve as a model for other states that are interested in maintaining the safety and health of their public workforces.”

The Maine State Plan for state and local government employees will be the newest OSHA-approved State Plan. If approved, the plan will cover approximately 81,000 public workers. Private sector and federally employed workers will remain under the jurisdiction of federal OSHA.
