Proposed Regulations

Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board

Pursuant to Government Code section 11346.4 and Labor Code sections 142.1, 142.3, 142.4, 144.5, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board will conduct a monthly board meeting at the following times and locations. During this meeting the board will hold an open public meeting, consider proposed revisions of the California Code of Regulations at its monthly public hearings, and conduct its business. As public hearing regulations, their supporting documents (an informative digest and initial statement of reasons), and agenda of the meeting become available they will be posted below as underlined links to the related documents.

Once adopted by the Board, the regulation is submitted to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for approval and submittal to the Secretary of State. OAL has 30 working days to approve or deny the regulation. If approved and submitted to the Secretary of State, the regulation becomes effective on a quarterly basis (January 1, April 1, July 1 or October 1) depending on the date OAL approves and submits to Secretary of State, unless it is a "Horcher," in which case the effective date is the same as the date the regulation is submitted to the Secretary of State.
