BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

California bill requiring employers to provide injury prevention plans vetoed

California bill requiring employers to provide injury prevention plans vetoed

California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would require employers to provide their employees their injury and illness prevention plan upon request. 

Assembly Bill 978, sponsored by Assemblywoman Monique Limon, D-Santa Barbara, would have required employers who received a written request for an injury and illness prevention plan from their employee or their authorized representative to comply with the request no later than 10 business days. 

“I support policies that promote access and transparency in order to prevent injuries and improve health and safety. The bill, however, is unnecessary and duplicative of an existing regulatory proposal that is already underway at the Occupational Safety and Health Board. The Standards Board advisory committee process is better suited to determine how to properly implement requirements of this kind,” Gov. Brown said in his veto message.
