On May 28, 2019, Andrew J. Sommer, Eric J. Conn and Megan S. Shaked of Conn Maciel Carey LLP‘s national OSHA Practice presented a webinar regarding: “Key Cal/OSHA Issues 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 should be on the lookout for a new permanent E-Recordkeeping injury data submission rule, a new focus on finding Repeat violations, and the roll-out of several new California-unique rules.
Participants in this webinar learned about:
Trends in Cal/OSHA Enforcement
New E-Recordkeeping electronic injury data submission requirements
Cal/OSHA’s new Repeat Violation Rule
Cal/OSHA’s Expanded Statute of Limitations for Recordkeeping Violations
Proposed Rules for Indoor Heat Illness Prevention, Workplace Violence in General Industry, and Protection from Wildfire Smoke
We are pleased to share these links to a copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar. Let us know if you have questions about Cal/OSHA enforcement or compliance issues, or any other OSH law issues. We would love to be a resource for you.
