SB 553 Becomes Law
On September 30, 2023, Governor Newsom signed a slew of new bills—including SB 553 Workplace Violence Prevention. All California employers (unless they fall under one of the few exemptions) will be required by July 1, 2024 to establish, implement, and maintain an effective workplace violence prevention plan. Full coverage of SB 553’s requirements can be found on CMC’s previous Cal/OSHA Defense Blog posts.
