Labor and Employment partner Jason Mills will speak at the CAL/OSHA Summit 2016: Leading-Edge Strategies for Exceptional Safety Management and Compliance in California. Jason will present on “Multi Employer Worksites: How to Master Compliance Obligations and Risk at Worksites With More Than One Employer Responsible for Safety” and he serve as a panelist for the discussion topic “Safety Violation Round-Up: Panel Discussion on the Most Common Cal/OSHA Violations and Best Strategies and Practices to Prevent Them.” 

Multi Employer Worksites: How to Master Compliance Obligations and Risk at Worksites With More Than One Employer Responsible for Safety
2:05 p.m. – 3:05 p.m. 

Multi-employer worksites present a host of safety compliance risks and legal obligations for each and every employer on a given worksite. This insightful session peers deep into one of the hottest issues plaguing California safety managers today, shedding practical light on:

  • Examples of when Cal/OSHA’s multi-employer worksite regulations apply 
  • How to identify key differences among the “exposing,” “creating,” and “controlling” employer—so you can tell which type of employer your organization is for purposes of interpreting the applicable Cal/OSHA regulations 
  • How to determine which employer is responsible for correcting a hazard 
  • When you’re likely to be vulnerable to costly penalties and citations stemming from a multi-employer situation 
  • And much more! 

Safety Violation Round-Up: Panel Discussion on the Most Common Cal/OSHA Violations and Best Strategies and Practices to Prevent Them
4:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Are you at risk for an expensive Cal/OSHA penalty right now? The fact is many organizations are at risk without even knowing it! During this lively panel, California-based safety attorneys will reveal the most common safety management policy and practice pitfalls of today—as evidenced through Cal/OSHA citations and costly penalties related to areas such as injury and illness prevention program (IIPP), injury recordkeeping and reporting, heat illness, slips, trips and falls, confined spaces, and lockout/tagout. By the end of this panel discussion, you’ll have a clearer picture of when Cal/OSHA violations are most likely—so you can evaluate your current safety practices and policies to ensure they’ll pass legal muster.
