Injury and Illness Recordkeeping in California: Key State Differences and Upcoming Developments on the 2020 Horizon

Live Webinar: Tuesday, November 26, 2019

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


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the practical impact the push for stricter injury and illness recordkeeping requirements in California will have on your workplace.



Cal/OSHA has recently taken steps toward implementing stricter injury and illness recordkeeping requirements than its federal counterpart, and more may be on the way.

Employers in California may now be cited for recordkeeping lapses during the full 5-year record retention period thanks to a rule implemented in response to the overturn of federal OSHA’s Volks rule under the Congressional Review Act.

And, a recent bill passed by the California State Legislature would revise the state’s serious injury reporting rule to require employers to report serious injuries and illnesses immediately by telephone or online.

It’s more critical than ever for employers in California to understand and follow their injury and illness recordkeeping obligations and stay apprised of ongoing rulemaking in this area.

Join us on November 26 for an all-new webinar with Attorney Tressi Cordaro of Jackson Lewis on the latest developments on the push for more stringent injury and illness recordkeeping requirements in California, and how to avoid compliance missteps generally in the Golden State.

You’ll learn how to: 

  • Recognize the differences between federal and California injury and illness recordkeeping requirements
  • Identify and follow California’s stricter requirements for severe injury reporting and learn what may be on the way for online reporting
  • Gain insight into potential rulemaking at Cal/OSHA that could significantly increase the electronic recordkeeping burden for employers in the state
  • Understand 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

About Your Presenter

Tressi L. Cordaro, Esq.Tressi L. Cordaro, Esq.
Principal
Jackson Lewis, P.C.

Tressi Cordaro, a Principal in the Washington, D.C. Region office of Jackson Lewis P.C., is admitted to practice in California and is the co-leader of the firm’s Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group. She advises and represents employers on occupational safety and health matters before federal and state OSHA enforcement agencies.

Cordaro has advised employers faced with willful and serious citations as the result of catastrophic events and fatalities, including citations involving multi-million dollar penalties. Her approach to representing an employer cited by OSHA is to seek an efficient resolution of contested citations, reserving litigation as the option if the client’s business objectives cannot otherwise be achieved. As a result, she has secured OSHA withdrawals of citations without the need for litigation.

Cordaro’s unique experience with government agencies involved in OSHA enforcement enables her to provide employers with especially insightful guidance as to how regulators view OSHA compliance obligations, and evaluate contested cases.

Cordaro served as the Presidentially-appointed Legal Counsel and Special Advisor to the past Chairman and Commissioner Horace A. Thompson, III at the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission (OSHRC) in Washington, DC, the agency that adjudicates contested federal OSHA citations. As the Commissioner’s chief counsel, Cordaro analyzed all cases presented to the OSHRC and advocated the Commissioner’s position during decisional meetings.

In addition, Cordaro worked at the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration developing OSHA standards, regulations and enforcement and compliance policies, with emphasis on the construction industry. She has in-depth experience on technical issues including, in particular, issues related to cranes and derricks in construction.
