The California Occupational Safety & Health Appeals Board announced this week the availability of a newly revised Appeal Information booklet and Appeal form to help employers who receive citations alleging health and safety violations of Title 8, California Code of Regulations, and the California Labor Code.
The 2001 Appeal Information edition helps answer in clear language questions that employers, employees, attorneys and the public may have about how OSHA matters are resolved within the state administrative judicial process. Available free of charge, this booklet updates all changes in the law since the last edition issued in 1998, expands the summary of the appeal process, deletes unnecessary code sections, and updates the address directory of all Cal/OSHA offices throughout California
The revised three-color Appeal form is available in a fill-in and printable format on the appeals board''s Web site at: www.dir.ca.gov/OSHAB/appealform.html.
