OSHA Requirements and Training Resources for Torrance CA
The State of California, under an agreement with Federal OSHA, 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. That is why most, but not all, employers in Torrance California must comply with Cal/OSHA safety orders requiring employee training.

CA OSHA Training 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 Torrance CA and the rest of 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.
