正如前面的解决乐动平台-首页OSHA法律博客,,,,California’sOccupational Safety and Health Standards Board (“Standards Board”) considered a proposed standard that would allow employee access to their employer’s Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (“IIPP”). During its January 16th,2020年会议委员会批准了拟议规则,该规则现在预计将在2021年1月1日受到影响。

新标准将要求雇主在请求后的五天内为雇员提供书面IIPP的访问。该标准为雇主提供了一些灵活性,以便他们如何提供对IIPP的访问。雇主有两个选择可以遵守该标准。首先,他们可以为要求员工提供该计划的印刷或电子副本。第二,代替提供计划副本,雇主还可以允许员工“通过公司服务器或网站访问未开创的访问权限,这使员工可以审查,打印和通过电子邮件发送该程序的当前版本。”

为雇主提供了有关雇员对IIPP请求的过程和程序的额外灵活性。拟议中的标准指出:“雇主应传达向所有雇员访问该计划的权利和程序。”为了回应雇主的评论,标准委员会指出,该小节旨在为“确定提供[]访问的最佳方法的雇主提供灵活性。”

Given the Standards Board’s approval of the proposed standard, employers should begin considering how they will comply. While this standard is not technically complex, it is best for employers to develop processes and train their management officials ahead of time. That way, when Cal/OSHA begins enforcing this standard, they will be ahead of the curve.
