2022 Cal/OSHA Recordkeeping Virtual Master Class - On-Demand

Available ON-DEMAND

Program Length: 8 hours

2022 will be another busy year for California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), as the agency just released an updated version of its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS).

On May 7, 2022, the agency posted fact sheets and updated its FAQs on the ETS to reflect revisions adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board on April 21, 2022. The ETS revisions incorporate updated guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and make the ETS more flexible if changes are made to CDPH guidance in the future. The updated ETS standards are in effect now through December 31, 2022. They apply to most workers in California not covered by the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases Standard.

On top of updated COVID ETS, Cal/OSHA’s injury and illness recordkeeping standards are creating additional challenges for many California employers. From determining which injuries and illnesses must be recorded, to maintaining and updating records properly and adhering to posting and notification obligations, the rule encompasses a number of complex requirements that many organizations struggle to manage.

And with the new electronic recordkeeping requirements that recently took effect in 2017, the stakes for noncompliance are now higher than ever, as OSHA will have access to a vast amount of establishment-specific data that the agency can use to target enforcement efforts. Attend this informative virtual master class and learn to keep your workplace compliance in check!

This two-day virtual intensive training will cover:

  • Cal/OSHA recordkeeping basics, including what is reportable, recordable, and what forms to use
  • Top ten OSHA violations and how to avoid them
  • Requirements for a successful Injury and Illness Prevention Program
  • How to effectively conduct an accident investigation
  • Anti-retaliation and defense against employee misconduct
  • Properly handling OSHA inspections and appeals

*Registrants will have access for 60-days from purchase.
