Cal/OSHA not doing enough to prevent workplace accidents

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, better known as Cal/OSHA, is the organization responsible for protecting workers by holding employers to certain safety standards. Reportedly, it has fallen short on many responsibilities to the state's workers. The agency is tasked with monitoring businesses, preventing hazardous conditions and training employers to prevent workplace accidents. However, a recent report suggests that this agency must increase staff and the number of inspections that it performs.

Citations may prevent California workers' compensation claims

California workplaces are expected to maintain certain health and safety standards in order to prevent workers from getting sick and injured. If a workplace violates these standards, citations and fines may be the result.

For example, Cal/OSHA recently fined Corona Regional Medical Center after receiving complaints about asbestos.
