The Cal/OSHA Defense Report is a blog designed to bring California employers recent developments in workplace safety and health law, but not just to note that something has happened, but to talk about why California employers should care, and how it will affect their business.
We started the Cal/OSHA Defense Report blog because we frequent several useful blogs dedicated to practical day-to-day workplace safety & health issues, but none that dive deep into workplace safety & health legal and regulatory issues, especially not focused on the unique regulatory environment in California. This new blog is intended to fill that void.
The Cal/OSHA Defense Report will be the place to go to learn about significant new developments from California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) and the Cal/OSH Standards Board. The blog will cover such topics as Cal/OSHA enforcement trends and initiatives, new interpretations, and major cases decided by the Cal/OSH Appeals Board and California state courts, as well as relevant Cal/OSHA policy and rulemaking issues.
We will offer practical advice with creative solutions with the goal to provide guidance to minimize exposure to costly liability. We hope you visit this site often and provide us with your feedback on what topics you are interested in.
The Cal/OSHA Defense Report blog is a companion blog to Conn Maciel Carey’s OSHA Defense Report (covering Federal OSHA and national workplace safety and health legal issues), MSHA Defense Report (covering Mine Safety and Health legal issues), and Employer Defense Report (covering issues in labor and employment law).
