The AAMA Western Region is sponsoring a webinar this spring, delivering insights on balancing Cal/OSHA compliance with protecting your company. Sean Paisan, counsel for Ogletree Deakins, will lead this presentation, “When Cal/OSHA Comes Calling.” This May 7 webinar is open only to AAMA members and certification licensees. However, a tweet thread covering a similar presentation given at the AAMA Western Region 2019 Winter Summit in February can be found here. Search #AAMAWR on Twitter for additional coverage.

What are your rights when a Cal/OSHA inspector comes calling? Whether you are with a large company supporting a full safety, compliance and HR team or a smaller operation that requires individuals to handle numerous roles, this webinar will provide valuable guidance on effectively interacting with Cal/OSHA officials and avoiding penalties by complying with requirements and related timelines.

The session covers a variety of nuances relative to addressing:

  • Reporting serious injuries
  • Managing the inspection
  • Responding to document request
  • Replying to the Notice of Intent (Form 1BY)
  • Handling the appeal
