Key Cal/OSHA Issues California Employers Must Track
Presented by Andrew Sommer, Eric J. Conn, and Megan Shaked

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 new requirements regarding indoor heat illness and workplace violence in general industry, among others.

During this webinar, participants will learn about:

• Data and trends in Cal/OSHA enforcement
• Amended serious injury reporting requirements
• New rules regarding wildfire smoke and training on Valley Fever
• Other developments, such as an Indoor Heat Illness Rule, Workplace Violence in
General Industry Rule, and others.
