Over the last 2 years, the California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) has been busy enforcing COVID-19 safety protocols and holding employers accountable for not following these rules, but that hasn’t been its only focus. Between COVID-19 masking, testing, and vaccine standards, Cal/OSHA has also:

  • Created a new Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) Standard in response to COVID-19,
  • Changed the definition of what a serious injury and/or illness is and how these incidents can be reported to Cal/OSHA,
  • Created two new classes of safety and health violations: enterprisewide and egregious,
  • Adopted an emergency regulation to protect workers from wildfire smoke,
  • Implemented heat illness prevention requirements,
  • And more!

Keeping workers safe and incident-free should always be top of mind, but with all the changing safety guidelines coming down from Cal/OSHA, it’s hard to keep up.

But fear not: Cal/OSHA Summit 2022—the leading state-specific event for California employers and safety professionals—will provide guidance for complying with the latest developments on new safety regulations, help you better understand your injury and illness recordkeeping requirements, and recognize strategies for overcoming all the specific nuances of Cal/OSHA regulations.

You’ll learn:

  • What’s coming down the pike from Cal/OSHA as we head into 2023,
  • How to comply with the ever-changing regulations surrounding COVID-19,
  • How to avoid ending up on Cal/OSHA’s top 10 list,
  • What to include in your heat illness prevention plan,
  • How to train workers to maintain a better safety culture,
  • Why you need alliances in order for your safety culture to work,
  • How to assess worker behavior to prevent an incident of workplace violence,
  • And more!
