Important Cal/OSHA Issues that California Employers Must Track [Webinar Recording]

On July 10, 2018, Conn Maciel Carey attorneys Andrew J. Sommer, Eric J. Conn, and Megan S. Shaked presented a webinar: “Key Cal/OSHA Issues that California Employers Must Track.”

The state of California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health, better known as Cal/OSHA, is perhaps the most aggressive and enforcement-heavy approved state OSH Program in the nation.  California employers face a host of requirements that other employers around the country do not.  Likewise, the Cal/OSHA inspection and appeal process creates several unique landmines for California employers.

Of particular significance, in the coming year, California employers can expect an uptick in Cal/OSHA penalties as result of two significant changes, one adopting higher maximum civil penalty authority, and the other changing how the agency finds and cites violations characterized as Repeat.

During this webinar, participants learned about:

  • Status of Cal/OSHA’s adoption of the E-Recordkeeping Rule
  • New rule for Repeat violations and increased civil penalty authority
  • Proposed General Industry Workplace Violence Rule
  • Cal/OSHA’s new hotel housekeeper Ergonomics Rule
  • Tips for navigating the Cal/OSHA appeals process

  1. To whom it may concern a modified version of California Employer Report of Occupational Injury and Illness Form 5020. Has been mailed to OSHA’S standards board. Sadly I don’t hear any other safety practitioners, lawers or safety professionals, talking about the modification of Form 5020.
