Areas of Potential Risk

The Corporate Criminal Liability Act of 1989 requires an Administrative Official or manager to notify affected employees and Cal/OSHA in writing within 15 days after being made aware that a "serious concealed danger" has been identified. All individuals likely to be subject to danger should be provided a sufficient description of the danger. Failure to notify Cal/OSHA and affected employees in a timely fashion may result in fines and criminal prosecution.

Cal/OSHA regulations require every employer to report any serious injury/illness or death of an employee occurring in a place of employment or in connection with any employment within 8 hours to the nearest CAL/OSHA office. EH&S performs this reporting after consulting with the supervisor or department representative of the employee. Failure to notify Cal/OSHA may result in fines.
