Existing law grants the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, which is within the Department of Industrial Relations, jurisdiction over all employment and places of employment, with the power necessary to enforce and administer all occupational health and safety laws and standards. The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, an independent entity within the department, has the exclusive authority to adopt occupational safety and health standards within the state. Existing law, the California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973, requires employers to comply with certain standards ensuring healthy and safe working conditions, as specified, and charges the division with enforcement of the act. Existing law makes certain violations of the act a crime. Existing law requires citations, orders, and special orders issued by the department, in enforcing occupational safety and health standards, to be prominently posted at or near each place a violation referred to in the citation or order occurred, in accordance with specified timeframes and procedures. Existing law makes certain violations of specified posting or recordkeeping requirements enforceable by a civil penalty. This bill would require an employer to post an employee notification containing specified information when the above-described citations or orders are issued. The bill would require this notification, in addition to English, to be made available in specified languages. The bill would make a violation of these provisions enforceable by a civil penalty, as specified. The bill would also include related legislative findings. By expanding the scope of a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
