To ensure the safety and health of all workers in the state of California, Cal/OSHA provides a set of health and safety standards that every commercial and industrial business in the state must follow. If your business is found to be in violation of California Health and Safety Standards, you will face citations and penalties. Let’s explore the potential cost of violating California Health and Safety Standards:
Cal/OSHA Safety Inspections
To ensure that your business is complying with California Health and Safety standards, Cal/OSHA can issue an onsite inspection performed by an enforcement staff member. During the inspection, the enforcement staff will perform a walk around of your facility. The inspector will note any imminent hazards, potential exposure to injury, and will note any formal complaints.
Types of Violations and Penalties
If your business is found to be in violation of California Health and Safety Standards, you can be cited for one of several types of violations. Depending on the type of violation, you may have to pay a penalty of $5,000 to $70,000 per violation. The inspector will issue a penalty based on the severity of the safety hazard and can adjust the penalty based on your cooperation and the citation history of the business.
There are many ways to ensure that your business is in compliance with Cal/OSHA regulations. It is important to make sure that every employee is provided with safe, healthy working conditions. You should also ensure that all of your facilities and equipment are up to safety code, and that your flooring provides a safe working surface for your employees.
