The Division of Occupational Safety and Health of the California Department of Industrial Relations ensures safe and healthful working conditions for California workers (except for federal employees, who are covered by the United States Department of Labor). The Division enforces all laws, standards and orders protecting worker health and safety on the job; in addition, it has jurisdiction over elevators, standards or mining and tunneling, pressure vessels, aerial tramways, and movable amusement rides. The Division also inspects business posing higher-the average potential risk to worker safety or health.



Complaint jurisdiction:

Unsafe or unhealthful working conditions; serious worker injury or illness; worksite fatalities; failure of an employer to monitor and measure harmful substances subject to CAL/OSHA standards; failure of an employee to notify employees of on-the-job exposure to harmful substances in concentrations higher than CAL/OSHA standards or limits.



Complaints outside jurisdiction:

Problems concerning federal employees; benefits; wage disputes; workers' compensation; employment discrimination; child labor laws; farm labor contracts.
