SOS: California Employers’ 9-Step Compliance Blueprint For New Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Safety Standard
January 12, 2021 | 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

The Cal/OSHA Standards Board recently approved an emergency regulation imposing new obligations on California employers related to COVID-19 prevention. This represents the most far-reaching formal rule-making by Cal/OSHA on COVID-19 and may be a preview of rule-making we can expect at the federal level under a Biden Administration. California employers did not have much time to comply with the new requirements – it became effective December 1, 2020. This webinar will educate you on these significant new requirements and steps you should immediately undertake to ensure compliance. This emergency standard is a significant game-changer, so this is one you will not want to miss.
