At the October 20 California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Administration (Cal/OSHA) Board meeting, Steve Smith of the Division of Safety and Health (DOSH) reported that DOSH would be convening a stakeholder workshop in December.  The purpose of the workshop will be for stakeholders and DOSH representatives to discuss the process by which permissible exposure limits (PEL) are set for substances used in the workplace.

Although DOSH is currently doing a fairly good job pulling all stakeholders in to the process, this move shows that the Division feels a real duty to the employer/employee community it serves.  Pulling together the collective intelligence and commitment to safety that comprises the stakeholder community will lead to a better final product.  

CMTA supports DOSH in this pursuit and hopes that this stakeholder workshop will lead to a more open process with increased stakeholder participation.
