IF YOU WANT TO REPORT BY TELEGRAPH, DO IT BEFORE JANUARY 1ST

Telegraph 236x3001

Though email has been an effective and accepted form of communications for the last few decades, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health Standards did not accept reports of injury, illness, or death via email…until now.

Signed by Governor Jerry Brown last month, AB 326 will amend Section 142.5 of the Labor Code to allow said reports to be made electronically. Previously the existing law provided that reports be made either on the phone or via telegraph. Clearly the law had not been touched for many, many years.

The new revision will replace telegraph with email and removes all language pertaining reports done via telegraph. Too bad, we wanted to see a return of Morse Code.
