Protecting Workers from Lead in California

Another new law in regards to heavy metals & safety has been introduced to California.  Assembly Bill 35 ensures that workers who are exposed to high levels of lead poisoning are reported to the state’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) and requires them to conduct a workplace safety investigation to determine the cause of the lead exposure and help businesses correct the cause of the lead poisoning.  Citations for violations and employer fines will also be enforced by Cal/OSHA and will be made publicly available each year.
