SPECIAL RULES 
APPLY F	
 OR 
WORK AROUND  HAZARDOUS 	
 SUBSTANCES: 
Employers who use any  substance  that is listed  as a hazardous substance  in 
California Code of  Regulations, title  8, section  339 (www.dir.ca.gov/title8/339.htmlyf  or 
is covered by  the Hazard Communication  standard (www.dir.ca.gov/title8/5194.htmlyf 
must  provide employees information on the hazardous  chemicals in their  work  areas, 
access  to safety  data sheets,  and training  on how to use hazardous  chemicals safely. 
Employers  shall make  available on a  timely and reasonable  basis a safety  data sheet 
on  each hazardous  substance in the workplace  upon request  of an employee,  an 
employee’s  collective bargaining representative,  or an employee’s  physician. 
Employees have the  right to see and copy  their medical  records and records  of 
exposure to potentially  toxic materials or harmful physical  agents. 
Employers must allow  access by  employees or  their representatives to accurate 
records  of employee  exposures  to potentially  toxic materials or  harmful physical 
agents,  and notify  employees of  any exposures in  concentration or  levels exceeding 
the exposure  limits allowed by Cal/OSHA  standards. 
Any  employee or  their representative has the right  to observe monitoring or 
measuring of employee exposure to hazards  conducted to comply with Cal/OSHA 
regulations. 
WHEN CAL/OSHA COMES TO THE WORKPLACE: 
A  trained Cal/OSHA  safety engineer  or industrial  hygienist may  visit the workplace to 
make sure your company  is obeying workplace safety and health laws. 
Inspections  are also conducted when an employee files a valid complaint  with 
Cal/OSHA. 
Cal/OSHA  also goes on-si te to the workplace  to investigate a  serious  injury or illness, 
or  fatality. 
When  an inspection  begins, the Cal/OSHA  investigator will show official identification. 
The employer,  or someone the employer  chooses, will be given an opportunity  to 
accompany  the investigator  during the inspection.  An authorized representative of  the 
employees  will be given the  same opportunity. Where  there is no authorized 
employee representative,  the investigator will talk  to a reasonable  number of 
employees about  safety and health  conditions at the workplace. 
VIOLATIONS, CITATIONS, AND  PENALTIES: 
If the  investigation  shows that the employer  has violated a safety and health standard 
or  order,  Cal/OSHA  may issue a citation.  Each citation carries  a monetary  penalty and 
specifies a date by  which the violation must be abated.  A notice,  which carries  no 
monetary  penalty, may be issued in  lieu of a citation for certain non-se rious violations. 
Penalty amounts  depend in part on the classification of  the violation as regulatory, 
general,  serious, repeat,  or willful;  and whether  the employer  failed to abate  a 
previous  violation involving the  same hazardous  condition. Base penalty  amounts, 
penalty  adjustment  factors, and minimum  and maximum  penalty amounts  are set forth 
in California Code of  Regulations, title 8,  section  336 (www.dir.ca.gov/title8/336.htmlyf 
In addition,  a willful  violation that  causes death or permanent impairment  of the body 
of  any  employee can result,  upon conviction, in a fine of up to  $250,000 or 
imprisonment  up to three years, or both,  and if the employer is  a corporation or  limited 
liability  company,  the fine may  be up to  $1.5 million. 
The law  provides  that employers  may appeal citations  within 15 working days of 
receipt  to the  Occupational  Safety and Health  Appeals Board. 
An employer  who receives a  citation, Order to Take Special Action,  or Special  Order 
must  post it prominently  at or near  the place of the violation for  three working days, or 
until  the unsafe condition is  corrected, whichever  is longer,  to warn  employees of 
danger  that may  exist  there.  Any employee may  protest the time allowed for 
correction of the violation to the Division of  Occupational Safety and Health  or the 
Occupational  Safety and Health Appeals  Board.
