OSHA Training in the California Bay Area

OSHA Training in the Bay Area / California

The State of California operates an approved State Plan OSHA Program, commonly known as Cal-OSHA. Initial approval of the California State Plan was published on May 1, 1973, and certification for completing all developmental steps was received on August 19, 1977.

OSHA Regulations and Standards

Health and safety standards in the State of California are significantly different than those of Federal OSHA. The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board is a standard setting agency within the Cal-OSHA program, which includes development and maintenance of standards for certain areas not covered by federal standards or enforcement. These latter standards apply to elevators, aerial passenger tramways, amusement rides, pressure vessels, and mine safety training.

Cal-OSHA health and safety standards (also known as safety orders under Title 8) are available on the California DOL website.


The California State Plan applies to all public and private sector places of employment in the state, with the exception of Federal employees, the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector employers on Native American lands, maritime activities on the navigable waterways of the United States, private contractors working on land designated as exclusive Federal jurisdiction, and employers that require Federal security clearances.
