Cannabis industry health and safety

Operating a safe workplace is critical to the success of a business. It is the obligation of all California businesses to ensure their employees are safe at work.

CAL/OSHA requirements for businesses include:

  • Injury and Illness Prevention Program
  • Occupational health and safety regulations that may apply to cannabis businesses
  • Enrolling in the CAL/OSHA 30-hour Standards for General Industry Training (not the federal OSHA 30-hour training).
