Cal/OSHA Summit 2017: Leading-Edge Strategies for Exceptional Safety Management and Compliance in California

October 10-11, 2017 | Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa

CONFERENCE SNAPSHOT: Cal/OSHA Summit 2017 is a leading state-specific event for California employers and safety professionals to get cutting-edge developments on new regulations, compliance strategies, and management tactics.

The Cal/OSHA Summit 2017 will help employers navigate these new changes and prepare for what's coming down the pipeline.  Attendees will:

  • Access proven strategies to avoid common mistakes in injury and illness reporting--Cal/OSHA’s most violated standard
  • Learn how to ace Cal/OSHA inspections by learning tips for a successful walk-through
  • Uncover proven tactics to protect California workers from heat stress and illness, according to Cal/OSHA's strict requirements
  • Discover safety incentives that other California companies have successfully implemented to drive low-risk behavior
  • Hear motivating and informative talks on post-accident drug testing and injury reporting, HazCom labeling practices, and workplace violence prevention
  • Get hands-on with a workshop to help you optimize your return-to-work process
  • Identify high-impact strategies to get buy-in on your safety culture program, from management and staff alike

Employers take notice: 2017 is shaping up to be a year of major concerns for California-based safety professionals. For example, Cal/OSHA’s regulatory focus includes:

  • The development of the hospital workplace violence standard, which will likely lead to standards coming to additional workplaces in time
  • Ongoing emphasis on heat illness and prevention
  • Increased spotlight on communicable illnesses
  • The development of standards that closely follow fed/OSHA’s recent revision to the recordkeeping rules and increased penalties
  • And more

Who should attend?
