Companies Using Higher Hazard Substances

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The Massachusetts Administrative Council on Toxics Reduction has designated trichloroethylene, cadmium, and cadmium compounds as higher hazard substances. Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance (MA OTA), in conjunction with the other Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) agencies, is launching an outreach program to organizations affected by that designation.

The effort will identify and notify companies about the new 1,000 pound reporting threshold for the substances. Meetings with representatives of impacted industries are under way, and the outreach campaign will include mailings, conference presentations, workshops, and direct communication with trade associations. Companies will be offered background information and support from OTA’s technical assistance program, the Toxics Use Reduction Institute’s Surface Cleaning Lab, and MassDEP’s compliance assistance program.
