This webinar on Cal/OSHA Enforcement and Defenses will cover the recent changes in the law, specifically the four most significant developments in Cal/OSHA enforcement and defense that will have an impact in 2015.

Why Should You Attend:

Employers in the state of California are generally aware of the unique challenges posed by Cal/OSHA, which has distinctive standards substantially different from federal OSHA rules, more frequent inspections, more serious citations, and much higher penalties for violations than any other state or federal OSHA.

However, many California employers are not aware of recent changes in Cal/OSHA enforcement.

This webinar will cover the four most significant developments in Cal/OSHA enforcement and defense that will have an impact in 2015: AB 2774 with respect to serious citations, multi-employer citations, Injury and Illness Prevention Program standard as a general duty to prevent accidents, and proposed expedited appeals of unabated violations.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

The following general topics will be covered in this webinar:

  • Recent changes in Cal/OSHA enforcement and defenses (2015).
  • Criteria for serious violations and changes due to AB 2774.
  • Definition of serious physical harm.
  • Multi-employer citation liability.
  • Avoidance of host employer liability.
  • I2P2, or Injury and Illness Prevention Programs.
  • I2P2 as a general duty to prevent accidents in California.
  • Abatement of citation violations.
  • Expedited hearings for unabated citations.

Learning Objectives:

To equip employer personnel with responsibility for OSHA compliance with the most up-to-date information on Cal/OSHA enforcement practices.


The webinar will include examples of forms, documents, photographs, and links to sources of standards and other inspection-related information.

Who Will Benefit:

Participants who will find this webinar particularly useful are

  • Senior Management
  • Safety professionals
  • Safety consultants
  • Plant/facility management
  • Operations personnel
  • HR Managers.
  • Insurance loss control advisors

The webinar's content and presentation are directed to non-environmental professionals and lawyers, like managers, facility managers, and others, but safety professionals, consultants, insurance loss control advisors, and attorneys not practicing OSHA law will find tricks of the trade and strategies described in the webinar useful.
