Cal/OSHA Advisory Committee Meeting
On January 25, 2019, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) published a final rule to amend its recordkeeping regulation by rescinding the requirement for establishments with 250 or more employees to electronically submit information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (“Cal/OSHA”) has determined that by rescinding the requirement to electronically submit Forms 300 and 301 data, OSHA has substantially diminished the requirements that were originally set forth in OSHA's May 12, 2016, "Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses" rule.
Pursuant to California Labor Code section 6410.2(b), Cal/OSHA will convene an advisory committee meeting to evaluate how to implement the changes necessary to protect the goals of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule, as issued on May 12, 2016. This public advisory committee meeting will be held at the following date and location:
Date: Thursday, May 9, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Location: Elihu Harris Building
1515 Clay Street, Suite 1304
Oakland, California 94612
Information on the advisory committee meeting has been posted online. Members of the public are invited to email their written commentsElectronicReporting@dir.ca.gov. The comment period is open until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 24, 2019.
If you have any questions regarding this advisory committee meeting, please contact Glenn Shor at (510) 286-7000 or at GShor@dir.ca.gov.
