California: Additional Increase in Cal/OSHA Citation Penalties

Prepared for the Katten Safety Advisory Group
Advisory | March 19, 2018

In 2017, California passed legislation authorizing the state's Department of Industrial Relations ("DIR") to raise California Occupational Safety and Health ("Cal/OSHA") citation civil penalties in compliance with federal law. Specifically, DIR revised the "Assessment of Civil Penalties" provisions of Title 8 Section 336 of the California Code of Regulations, raising penalty amounts for regulatory, general, repeat, and willful citations, bringing California's penalties closer in line with increased federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration citation penalties.
