SPECIAL 
RULES A	 PPLY
 FOR  WOR	
K  AROUND  HAZARDOUS  SUBSTANCES: 

Employers who use any  substance that is listed as a hazardous substance in 
California Code of	

 R egulations, title 8, section  339 (www.dir.ca.gov/title8/339.html), or 
is covered by the Hazard Communication standard (www.dir.ca.gov/title8/5194.html) 
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 av ailable 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 t	
heir medical records and records	 of 
exposure to potentially toxic materials or  har	mful physical agents. 
Employers must allow ac cess	
 by employees or their representatives to accurate 
records of employee ex posures to potentially toxic materials or harmful physical 
agents, and notify  e	
mployees of any exposures in concentration or levels exceeding 
the exposur	
e limits allowed by Cal/OSHA standards. 
Any employee or their representative has the right to observe monitoring or 
measuring of	

 employ ee 	 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  v	
isit 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-site to	
  the workplace to investigate a s erious 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 s	
hows 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. Bas	
e penalty amounts, 
penalty adjustment factors, and minimum  and maximum penalty amounts are set forth 
in California Code of	

 Regulations, tit le 8, section 336 	
(www.dir.ca.gov/title8/336.html). 
In addition, a willful v iolati	
on that causes d	eath 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. 
A	

n 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 m ay 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 B oard.
