Have You Received CAL OSHA Citations?
Did your company receive one or more CAL OSHA Citations? Did an OSHA Enforcement Agent stop by? Was there an accident? Was there a complaint? Be prepared for OSHA Citations. If OSHA has paid you a visit, chances are, OSHA citations will follow.
After an OSHA visit, the first step will be a request for certain documentation. That’s usually given to you at the time of the visit. The title of this form is a Document Request, known to CAL OSHA as a 1AY. Being given this document to fill out is a pretty good indication that OSHA fines are coming.
You may not receive the next step until many months later. Only expect this if there was an accident where someone was injured. This document is normally emailed or mailed to you. It’s called a Notification of Intent to Classify Citation as Serious, or in CAL OSHA terms, a 1BY. It tends to be an unnecessary step in the overall process.
The Notification of Intent to Classify Citation as Serious will summarize the accident. It will then state: You are encouraged to provide, in writing, any statements and supporting evidence showing that the Division should not classify the citation as “serious”.
