The Trump Administration is having a major impact on Federal OSHA, likely no new regulations will pass this year (and that includes silica).  That doesn’t mean Cal OSHA can’t continue it’s progressive agenda!

Below are this years Cal OSHA Advisory Committee dates, open to the public.  When one of these laws impacts you, speak up, that’s what these committees are for.  We must express how new laws impact us on a day to day basis or the politicians will not know better!!

Log 300 Recording and Reporting, with Anti-Discrimination Provisions

Effective January 1, 2017, employers in states regulated by federal OSHA are required to electronically submit Log 300 records of injuries and illnesses and are prohibited from discriminating against employees for reporting a work-related injury or illness. Employers in California, however, are not required to follow the new requirements at this time and will not be required to do so until “substantially similar” regulations go through the formal rulemaking process and are adopted by the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations and approved by the Office of Administrative Law. Cal/OSHA has drafted a proposed rulemaking package, and the package is currently under review.
