Cal/OSHA Summit 2016: Leading-Edge Strategies for Exceptional Safety Management in California

October 18, 2016 | Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa

Don't wait until an OSHA inspection or an accident to review your safety policies. Exercise due diligence to ensure you are in compliance with state regulations by attending this critical event!

California employers want to maintain a safe work environment—to protect their workforce and avoid costly payouts—but it’s difficult to meet the state’s complex and ever-changing compliance obligations. To fill this critical market need, the publisher of Cal/OSHA Compliance Advisor and is debuting Cal/OSHA Summit, the one-day, solution-focused event for California safety managers, consultants, and other professionals charged with OSHA compliance at their organization.

The one-day action-packed agenda includes powerful sessions on:

  • How the latest state and federal rulings impact your California-based safety management compliance obligations
  • The latest DOSH, Appeals Board, Standards Board, and consultation services’ priorities for the year ahead
  • Practical strategies for managing safety for contingent labor
  • Cutting-edge strategies for managing the Cal/OSHA inspection process with ease
  • Intersecting compliance obligations between Cal/OSHA Requirements, Workers’ Compensation, and other employment laws
  • How to master compliance obligations and risk at work sites with more than one employer responsible for safety
  • Case studies on world-class California safety culture programs
  • The most common Cal/OSHA violations and best strategies to prevent them

California safety professionals have to be vigilant!

Consider, in 2015 alone, thirteen new standards or revisions to existing standards took effect. Highlights include revisions to the heat illness prevention standard, a revision to the PEL for hydrogen chloride, a new standard for storage battery systems, and confined spaces in construction. Significant proposed rules in the pipeline include fall protection for work around skylights and workplace violence prevention in healthcare.

In 2015, these were the top five Cal/OSHA violations:

  1. Injury and Illness Prevention Program (8 CCR 3203)
  2. Heat Illness Prevention (8 CCR 3395)
  3. Injury and Illness Prevention Program (Construction) (8 CCR 1509)
  4. Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout) (8 CCR 3314)
  5. Failure to report work-connected fatalities and serious injuries (8 CCR 342(a))

The Cal/OSHA Summit will help you address these challenges, protect your workers, and prevent costly violations!
