Ergonomic Standard Protects Hotel Industry Workers

From the Labor & Employment Department:

Beginning July 1, 2018, Cal/OSHA will start enforcing an ergonomic standard to protect hotel lodging industry housekeepers from musculoskeletal injuries.

The new rule requires covered employers to have a Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Program which includes: worksite evaluations to identify and evaluate housekeeping hazards; investigative procedures for musculoskeletal injuries to housekeepers; corrective methods for identified hazards; and training on safe practices and controls, and an early reporting process of injuries to employers.

Will you be compliant by July 1st?

Contact the Labor & Employment Department at SBEMP to assist your hospitality-based business in becoming compliant.
