RR 412: Dave Fischer – OSHA and Labor Law Expert Helps You Minimize Fines and Get Compliant
California Employer’s Services was started in 1997. The goal was to get employers compliant with both OSHA and California Labor Laws. Today the laws are so complex that it is really difficult for employers to comply without a Compliance Coach. Today’s message to employers is that compliance only counts before, before the knock on the door from OSHA, or before the letter of intent to sue from an employees attorney. Our track record makes it clear that we have been successful in making compliance easy. In 2018 we had over 20 cases before OSHA, and we did not lose one. We are passionate about employers rights and it shows. We provide employers with all the tools they need to get and stay in compliance with both OSHA and Labor Laws.
All about employers protecting their rights.
Key Talking Points:
CAL OSHA stricter than Federal OSHA
Grinder violation $8,000 fine and serious offense
Eyewash station $18,000 fine without one
Cracked outlet cover fine
Fire extinguisher inspection fine
New regulations- now need written safety policies or will be fined
Enforcement officers- can enforce laws any way they want to, very objective
Three types of enforcement officers
Bambi-Easy going, give donut and good to go
Blue collar- follows rules, consistent and constant
Tyrant- will fine you for everything possible
Virtually impossible for employers to comply without a coach
Need to be protected and covered
Labor laws- wages/hourly
Misclassification of employees
Don’t ignore compliance, be proactive, get good policies and adhere to those policies
When OSHA comes will you be prepared?
