On April 16, 2020, Andrew Sommer, Eric J. Conn, and Megan Shaked of the law firm Conn Maciel Carey presented a complimentary webinar: Cal/OSHA Developments that California Employers Must Track.
California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health, aka Cal/OSHA, is perhaps the most aggressive and enforcement-heavy 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.
- Cal/OSHA requirements for addressing COVID-19 in the workplace, including its Aerosol Transmissible Diseases rule and Interim Guidelines for General Industry
- Data and trends in Cal/OSHA enforcement
- Top legal developments including related to protective footwear
- Amended serious injury reporting requirements
- New rules regarding wildfire smoke and training on Valley Fever
- Proposed rulemaking including the Indoor Heat Illness Rule, and Workplace Violence in General Industry
We are pleased to share links to a copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar. Let us know if you have questions about any Cal/OSHA regulatory issues or any other workplace safety issues. We would love to be a resource for you.
