Dec 15    CA's New Standards for Maintaining a Safe Workplace
Montebello Chamber members are invited to an exclusive online informative 60-minute coffee chat with CalChamber's compliance experts on December 15th — to “chat” about the new requirements facing employers.  Participating in the conversation will be:

  • Bianca Saad, CalChamber Employment Law Counsel and Subject Matter Expert

Some of OSHSB’s emergency provisions are already integrated into previous guidelines, but many are new altogether. Employers will want to understand their implications as soon as possible.
