Emergency Protection from Wildfire Smoke Regulation

Emergency Regulation Approval Information

"The Cal/OSHA Standard's Board unanimously approved an emergency regulation relative to protecting workers from the risks of wildfire smoke on 7/18/19.

The protocol for emergency rule making is significantly expedited and as such, this regulation will take effect within ten (10) days of being received by the Office of Administrative Law, which could be as early as today. If so, employers statewide would need to be prepared for compliance as early as July 29, 2019.

AgSafe has developed an overview of the regulation and what compliance requires, available in English and Spanish."
