How Workplace Safety Regulations are Created
Did you know that it is the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (also known as the OSHSB or the Standards Board) and not Cal/OSHA that makes decisions on new workplace safety regulations or changes to existing regulations? During this free webinar, you’ll learn how the Standards Board develops new workplace safety regulations and how to stay informed about changes that could affect your business.

You’ll learn:
• The makeup and purpose of the Standards Board
• How new workplace safety regulations are created or changed
• What the Standards Board considers when deciding on Cal/OSHA regulations
• Current and future regulations changes being discussed and how to stay informed on changes
• How businesses or industry groups can provide input on proposed Cal/OSHA regulations

This free webinar is offered by State Compensation Insurance Fund, California’s workplace safety expert and largest workers’ compensation insurer in California. A representative from the Standards Board will present the webinar and answer questions from participants afterwards.

Dec 9, 2020 10:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
