Staying on top of California’s strict and ever-changing workplace safety standards is a constant struggle for employers in the state.

As 2019 draws to a close, it’s crucial to take a look at the upcoming Cal/OSHA developments with the potential to impact California businesses in 2020 and beyond.

From the recently implemented wildfire smoke protection standard to upcoming rules on indoor heat stress, workplace violence in general industry, and more, Cal/OSHA is continuing to impose new and challenging compliance requirements.

In addition, a recent California supreme court case found that the state could issue penalties for workplace safety violations under the state’s unfair competition and fair advertising laws in addition to the existing Cal/OSHA penalty structure, potentially creating a significant new source of liability for employers who run afoul of safety regulations.
