OSHA training required in MA and RI
18 April 2008
Employees entering construction jobsites in Massachusetts or Rhode Island need to be aware of safety-training certification requirements. Massachusetts has implemented requirements for most construction workers to have an OSHA 10-hour site safety-training certificate in their possession by August of 2006. Rhode Island is already requiring this certificate. Once implemented, most job site managers will prohibit jobsite access to workers who do not have this certificate.
