California State Agency Safety and Health Network

Cal/OSHA, through the Department of Industrial Relations, facilitates quarterly California State Agency Workplace Safety and Health Network meetings.

These meetings are intended to support all California State agencies, departments, boards and commissions and provide important updates and helpful information on requirements to protect their employees in the workplace from occupational safety and health hazards. The network is a space for California State agencies and is not open to the general public.

During the network meetings, Cal/OSHA subject matter experts share specific information on a range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • What's new and relevant to state agencies on protecting their workforce
  • New and emerging hazards
  • Why it's important for agencies to develop effective health and safety programs that address worker protections on:
    • Worksite-specific injury and illness prevention
    • COVID-19 infection prevention
    • Heat illness prevention
    • Worker safety and health protections in wildfire regions
    • Workplace violence prevention
    • Other important updates, revisions, or changes that affect workers
  • How to contact Cal/OSHA Consultation Services for free and confidential technical assistance
  • Various instructor-led and self-paced online training and webinars as they are available
    • Collateral materials for promoting workplace safety (pocket guides, fact sheets, social media posts, etc.)
  • Best practices, lessons learned and more
  • Open Q&A session at the end of each meeting

If you are a California State agency and are not part of our network, then we encourage you to submit a request from your California work email account to be added to the California State Agency Workplace Safety and Health Network meeting distribution list to receive notifications of meeting dates, meeting invites, planned agenda topics, and other shared resources.
