South Berwick fined for lack of training in blood-borne pathogens

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — At a recent South Berwick Town Council meeting, Town Manager Perry Ellsworth expressed optimism about efforts to mitigate a recently imposed state Department of Labor fine against the town.

The $4,250 fine cites the town for failing to meet several personnel measures, said Ellsworth.

These include a lack of training in blood-borne pathogens for town employees, documentation of staff inoculations against Hepatitis B and C, and hazard safety assessments for specific municipal positions.
