    Hello New England States and Beyond,                                  

    Please join us this Wednesday at 9:00 am for another virtual roundtable event. 

    February 8, 2023 - New England OSHA Consultation Program for Small Businesses

    Presented by: Consultation Program Managers

    Using a free consultation service funded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employ­ers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health manage­ment systems, and even qualify for a one-year exemption from routine OSHA inspection. Primarily targeted for smaller, high-hazard businesses, OSHA’s safety and health consultation program is completely separate from the OSHA inspection effort. In addition, no citations are issued or penalties proposed. Confidentiality will be strictly maintained during the consultation process. This session will give small business in New England the op­portunity to learn more about the services the regions’ consultation programs provide.

    Please note that the online platform only allows 300 attendees at this time.  If you are not added to the distribution list or would like to be removed from it, please email me direction at;

    MASSACHUSETTS | Revised Pesticide Bill Introduced, Expands Pesticide Restrictions on School Property, Allows for Electronic Records. 

    On Tuesday, a new draft of House Bill 4600 was introduced on Beacon Hill that would make changes to the Massachusetts Pesticide Control Act, Chapter 132b, including the expansion of restrictions on pesticide use on school grounds to include public institutions of higher education. Massachusetts has long had restrictions on pesticide use in and around public K-12 schools and day care facilities requiring IPM planning, public notification and application restrictions. The bill now requires schools to adopt and implement IPM plans by November 1, 2022. The bill will also make changes to the reporting requirements of pesticide use to the state, first allowing the state’s Department of Agricultural Resources to collect the information electronically via the already established ePlace Portal system and will require the state to make that data available to the public on an annual basis.  

    The state’s formal, two-year session will end on July 31st with much negotiation going on until the final hour.  The new bill, House 4931, is expected to be voted on in the House shortly.
