State Insurance Fund

Compliance with Executive Order 134 - Environmental Impact of Cleaning of Facilities

The State Insurance Fund provides workers’ compensation and disability benefit insurance coverage to many employers in New York State. Executive Order 134 required State agencies and certain other entities, such as the State Insurance Fund, to procure and use cleaning products that minimize the potential impacts to human health and the environment. It also required the agencies to conduct an assessment of their programs to promote environmentally safe cleaning and transition to certain conforming products within specified time periods. We found that the Fund had not conducted an assessment of its cleaning practices and was not monitoring the practices at its facilities to ensure compliance with the Executive Order. We recommended actions that would bring the Fund into compliance with the Order.
