Dear

Pursuant to your request of                   , the Division of
Occupational Safety and Health will hold an informal conference. 
The informal conference is scheduled as follows:

                Date:                                    

               Time:                                          

               Place:                                            

It is the responsibility of the employer to notify affected
employees, or their representatives, of the date, time and
location of the informal conference and to encourage them to
attend.  Participation by the employer, an employee or an
employee's representative in an informal conference does not
expand or diminish the rights of the employer, the employee or
the employee's representative in a proceeding before the
Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board.   

If an employer wishes to appeal a Citation and Notification of
Penalty, the employer must file an appeal with the Occupational
Safety and Health Appeals Board in Sacramento within fifteen (15)
days from the date the employer receives the Citation.  The
occurrence of the informal conference does not affect the
employer's right to file an appeal with the Occupational Safety
and Health Appeals Board. 

Please bring with you to the informal conference any documents
which you believe are relevant.  
 
Sincerely,


District Manager or Designee
