Due to recent recommendations from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to postpone non-essential gatherings, ABD has decided to postpone our Preparing for OSHA seminar which was scheduled for March 19th next week. We will reach out in April with an update on a new date. If you would like more information on OSHA’s recommendations on responding to Coronavirus pandemic, please visit the link below.

Please join us to discuss the latest Cal-OSHA updates and how to prepare for and handle regulator site visits. Inspections can be stressful and include a high level of scrutiny of your company’s documents and practices. A well-established health and safety program and response plan is the best way to prepare for potential visits from regulators. We will discuss what to expect, how to respond and preparation best practices.
