California Employers' Records of Occupational Injury and Illness
California Standards 14300.2 Partial Exemption for Establishments in Certain Industries
(1) If you are a public or private sector employer and all of your establishments are classified in the retail, service, finance, insurance or real estate industries listed in Table 1 in Appendix A of this section, you do not need to keep Cal/OSHA injury and illness records required by Article 2 unless the government asks you to keep the records under Section 14300.41 or Section 14300.42. However, all employers must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health any workplace incident that results in a serious injury or illness, or death, as required at Title 8 Section 342.
(2) If one or more of your establishments are classified in a non-exempt industry, you must keep Cal/OSHA injury and illness records required by Article 2 for all such establishments except those partially exempted because of size under Section 14300.1.
(1) Does the partial industry classification exemption apply only to the types of establishments in the retail, service, finance, insurance or real estate industries listed in Table 1?
Yes. Establishments classified in agriculture; mining; construction; manufacturing; transportation; communication, electric, gas and sanitary services; or wholesale trade, and those establishments in the retail, service, finance, insurance and real estate industries not specifically listed in Table 1 in Appendix A are not eligible for the partial industry classification exemption.
(2) Is the partial industry classification exemption based on the industry classification of my entire company or on the classification of individual establishments operated by my company?
The partial industry classification exemption applies to individual establishments. If a company has several establishments engaged in different classes of activities, some of the company's establishments may be required to keep records, while others may be exempt.
(3) How do I determine the Standard Industrial Classification code for my company or for individual establishments?
You determine your Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code by using the Standard Industrial Classification Manual, Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget. You may contact the nearest office of the Division of Occupational Safety and Health for help in determining your SIC code. The SIC Manual can also be viewed at the Internet site for OSHA, www.osha.gov.

All employers, including those partially exempted by reason of size or industry classification, must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health any workplace incident that results in a serious injury or illness, or death, as required at Title 8 Section 342.
