Injury and Illness Recordkeeping in California: Key State Differences and Upcoming Developments

Webinar Rebroadcast: Tuesday, June 25, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with California’s injury and illness recordkeeping requirements.



In September 2018, Assembly Bill No. 2334 was signed into law. This bill will have at least one, if not two, major effects on California employers’ reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

First, starting January 1, 2019, the Bill expands Cal/OSHA’s ability to cite a California employer for recordkeeping violations. Now, citations can be issued until the violations are “corrected, the Division discovers the violation, or the duty to comply with the requirement that was violated no longer exists.” This expansion is in direct response to the Trump Administration’s rescission of federal OSHA’s “Volks Rule”.

Assembly Bill No. 2334 is also a reaction to the hotly-debated (and ever changing) federal OSHA "Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses" rule. In January 2019, after many years of criticism, OSHA published its final rule amending its E-Recordkeeping Rule by rescinding the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to electronically submit information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301.

Pursuant to the bill, Cal/OSHA will now convene an advisory committee to evaluate how to implement the changes necessary to protect the goals of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule. Such implementation could make Cal/OSHA e-recordkeeping stricter than its federal counterpart.

Join us on June 25 for a rebroadcast of a widely popular webinar led by a seasoned Cal/OSHA attorney on how to comply with California’s injury and illness recordkeeping requirements.

When you attend this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the differences between current fed/OSHA and Cal/OSHA injury and illness reporting and e-recordkeeping requirements
  • Understand and follow the severe injury reporting requirements
  • Gain insight into potential rulemaking at Cal/OSHA that could significantly increase the e-recordkeeping burden for employers in the state
  • Recognize the impact of Cal/OSHA’s change to the definition of “occurrence” as it pertains to injury and illness recordkeeping violations and how it changes employers’ exposure to citations and fines
  • Maintain complete, accurate, and compliant injury and illness records
