SELECTED INDICATORS IN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION:   A REPORT CARD FOR CALIFORNIANS

Safety Inspections

DOSH has two major units devoted to conducting inspections to protect the public from safety hazards:

The Elevator, Ride and Tramway Unit conducts public safety inspections of elevators, amusement rides -- both portable and permanent -- and aerial passenger tramways or ski lifts.

The Pressure Vessel Unit conducts public safety inspections of boilers (pressure vessels used to generate steam pressure by the application of heat), air and liquid storage tanks, and other types of pressure vessels.

Health and Safety Standards

The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB), a seven-member body appointed by the Governor, is the standards-setting agency within the Cal/OSHA program.

The mission of OSHSB is to promote, adopt, and maintain reasonable and enforceable standards, at least as effective as federal standards, to ensure a safe and healthful workplace for California workers.  OSHSB also has the responsibility to grant or deny applications for variances from adopted standards and respond to petitions for new or revised standards. The safety and health standards provide the basis for Cal/OSHA enforcement.
