OSHA and Cal/OSHA Update Operational Enforcement Agreement
Under the updated operational agreement, Federal OSHA “gains coverage of private and tribal employers on US-government recognized Native American reservations and trust lands.”
California’s State OSHA Plan retains authorization to oversee work safety for most private employees in California, public employees, and maritime industry workers. Federal OSHA, meanwhile, is still responsible for private employers on military installations and Federal parks.
US states implement OSHA work safety regulations in 3 ways. They may have no plan, in which case Federal OSHA oversees employers in the state—creating safety standards, carrying out inspections, and assessing fines and violations.
The 3 Types of OSHA State Plans
States may have a “partial” plan, in which case the State plan covers only public employees. In these states, Federal OSHA oversees work safety at all private employers.
Lastly, stats may adopt a “full” OSHA State Plan. Under full OSHA State Plans, states oversee work safety enforcement—including inspections, outreach, and enforcement. Currently, 22 states, including California, have full OSHA State Plans.

I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
