在加利福尼亚州记录和报告职业伤害和疾病的要求是独一无二的,该州的义务比联邦职业安全与健康管理局(“ OSHA”)更严格,涉及“严重伤害”以及与工作有关的伤害的报道乐动体育有赛事直播吗乐动平台-首页或疾病。加州劳资关系部职业安全与健康部(“ CAL OSHA”)的加利福尼亚州雇主进一步使此事复杂化乐动平台-首页发布指南上记录and reporting of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) cases, which differs from guidance issued by federal OSHA.

很像联邦OSHA的指导乐动平台-首页COVID-19录制和报告, Cal OSHA’s guidance contends that employers need to assess COVID-19 cases for work-relatedness and record them on the company’s log (i.e., 300, 300A and 301 or equivalent forms) when the COVID-19 case satisfies recording criteria by leading to death, lost time, medical treatment beyond first aid, or loss of consciousness. Under Cal OSHA’s guidance, employers may also need to report the COVID-19 case when work-related and results in the employee’s death or hospitalization. But, unlike federal OSHA requirements, Cal OSHA’s guidance makes clear that employers may also need to record a COVID-19 case, and potentially report, if it causes a “significant injury or illness” as diagnosed by a licensed medical or healthcare professional. In addition, any work-related COVID-19 case that results in a fatality or hospitalization needs to be reported, regardless of how long has passed from the possible exposure event due to differences in Cal OSHA’s requirements for reporting.

CAL OSHA关于COVID-19案件的记录和报告的指南的其他重大差异包括:乐动平台-首页

  • 确认的Covid-19案:像联邦O乐动平台-首页SHA一样,Cal OSHA认为进行了阳性的Covid-19测试,以确认Covid-19感染。然而,与联邦OSHA不同,Cal OS乐动平台-首页HA的指导表明,在某些情况下,雇主必须在没有测试结果的情况下记录或报告COVID-19案件,从而证实了Covid-19的存在。Cal 乐动平台-首页OSHA还采取了这样的立场,在某些情况下记录和报告义务将适用于可疑的COVID-19案件和一些尚未被诊断为Covid-19的员工疾病。
  • 工作中的疾病:Because of Cal OSHA’s more stringent requirements for reporting of a “serious injury or illness,” Cal OSHA’s guidance contends that employers need to report a case when an employee becomes sick at work if it constitutes a “serious injury or illness” without regard for whether it is work-related. Under this guidance, California employers may have an obligation to report a COVID-19 case to the agency, even if it is ultimately determined not to be work-related.
  • 工人赔偿考虑:直接回应California Governor Newsom’s order关于与COVID-19合同的基本工人的工人赔偿资格,Cal OSHA的指导建议雇主,根据CAL OSHA法规的记录和报告义务的与工作相关的决定仍然与对工人薪酬资格的决心分开乐动平台-首页。

While in the end, both federal OSHA and Cal OSHA agree that COVID-19 cases will be recordable and reportable in some cases employers in California need to be diligent in assessing instances of COVID-19 to ensure they comply with California’s more stringent recording and reporting obligations.
