Cal/OSHA Proposes Emergency Regulation to Protect Workers from Wildfire Smoke Exposure
For California, wildfires are happening more frequently and unfortunately, they are also becoming more intense. The workers that fight these fires are put at greater risk due to the poor air quality and smoke exposure. This white paper reviews the recent proposed emergency regulation that Cal/OSHA issued addressing smoke exposure.
Kaitlyn D. Shannon focuses her practice on environmental enforcement and litigation. She has experience with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA); the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); and California’s Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and routinely assists clients in navigating the interaction between state and federal laws in these areas. She also handles administrative appeals for employers under California’s Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) program and has guided companies through the use of California writ petitions to challenge agency actions.
Kaitlyn also assists diverse industries in making strategic decisions before litigation is initiated to either resolve the conflict through early communications with the regulating agency or, if necessary, take action to preserve legal case theories. In particular, she provides advice to product manufacturers and trade associations under multiple California Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulatory schemes.
