CAL/OSHA Enforcement Activity

The Department’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (“Cal-OSHA”) conducts inspections of workplaces in response to an accident or complaint, and as part of its routine enforcement activity. 

Cal-OSHA inspectors log their inspection and enforcement activity in a U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) database called the Integrated Management Information System, or IMIS. IMIS contains information about inspections, and occupational health and safety enforcement activity conducted by both federal and state inspectors throughout the United States.

Please be certain to review the “Note to Users” regarding interpretation of IMIS search results that is posted on the Department of Labor’s OSHA website. Also, please be aware that the fact a workplace has been inspected by Cal-OSHA does not also mean that Cal-OSHA has cited the workplace owner for a violation of workplace health and safety laws.
