California has a state run OSHA program, and as such, the Feds don’t get directly involved in enforcement, which is the jurisdiction of Cal/OSHA. However, the Feds have jurisdiction over all federal lands and projects in the state.
While the citation and appeal process is similar to that of Fed/OSHA, there are a few nuances that make the federal appeal process different. Penalties, business impact, and criticality of outcome, are equally important to Cal/OSHA matters, and should be approached with the same caution discussed in our Cal/OSHA section.
Walter & Prince is available to help throughout the Fed/OSHA inspection and appeal process, and will work with employers at each step in order to achieve the best possible resolution.
