CA OSHA Training Regulations and Standards
Health and safety standards regulating OSHA training in Los Angeles and the rest of State of California are significantly different than those of Federal OSHA and the other states operating their own OSHA programs. 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.
