California Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

California is a “state plan” state; that is, it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. The Cal/OSH Act governs occupational safety and health in both the public and private sector workplaces. The Act has adopted the standards of the federal OSH Act in many respects, and had adopted several of its own rules that are stricter than federal standards. See TABLE 1 in this section for state-specific workplace safety recordkeeping requirements.
