OSHA Approves Maine as Newest State Plan Protecting State and Local Government Workers

Maine becomes one of five states that manage their own health and safety programs programs for state and local government employees as approved by OSHA.

OSHA announced that Maine has been approved as the newest state plan to protect the safety and health of state and local government employees.

Maine, along with Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, and the Virgin Islands, are the only states and territories that administer safety and health programs for state and local government employees that are committed to be as effective as federal OSHA.

"This is a major milestone for Maine public employees and the state's development of its occupational safety and health program," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "We applaud them for their ongoing commitment to the well–being of government workers who provide the most vital services that make the state of Maine livable and enjoyable."
