The Massachusetts Workplace Safety and Health Program (WSHP was recognized as an OSHA State Plan in August 2022. WSHP enforces occupational safety and health regulations in public sector workplaces, including state, county, and municipal workplaces; public schools, colleges, universities, and quasi-government agencies, such as water districts and transportation. Federal OSHA continues to have jurisdiction over the private sector. State Plans are OSHA-approved workplace safety and health programs operated by individual states or U.S. territories. State Plans are monitored by OSHA and must be at least as effective as OSHA in protecting workers and in preventing work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths.
