California Workplace Safety Compliance Outlook 2017: New Cal/OSHA Developments And Legal Snares To Avoid

About This Course:
The state of California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), better known as Cal/OSHA, is perhaps the most aggressive and enforcement heavy approved state OSH program.

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.

As 2017 kicks into gear, now is the perfect time to reassess your safety programs to be sure your organization is in compliance with the latest Cal/OSHA safety regulations and can effectively navigate Cal/OSHA’s appeal process.

Join us for an in-depth discussion led by Andrew Sommer, seasoned California-based workplace safety and labor and employment attorney. He will walk you through the necessary changes and precautions you’ll need to take to ensure that your organization is compliant with these new Cal/OSHA standards.

Learning Objectives:
  • Cal/OSHA’s new repeat violation rule, effective January 1, 2017
  • Cal/OSHA’s new workplace violence rule for health care facilities, which goes into effect April 1, 2017
  • A new law mandating the development of heat illness prevention regulations for indoor workplaces
  • Anticipated changes to Cal/OSHA penalties
