Chapter 4. Reporting of California Labor Code >> Division 5. >> Part 10. >> Chapter 4.

The standards board shall adopt one or more standards requiring each employer which uses any carcinogen, including asbestos and vinyl chloride, to submit a written report regarding the use or any incident which results in the release of a potentially hazardous amount of a carcinogen into any area where employees may be exposed. The reporting requirements set forth in Sections 5209 and 5210 of Title 8 of the California Administrative Code on January 1, 1986, shall remain in effect until amended or repealed by the standards board, and any subsequent reporting requirements shall provide for reports which are at least as detailed as those required on that date. For asbestos and vinyl chloride, the standards board shall adopt a standard which requires each employer who uses vinyl chloride or asbestos to report in a manner similar to the reporting required pursuant to Section 5209 of Title 8 of the California Administrative Code.
The division shall transmit a copy of each report specified in Section 9030 to any bargaining representatives, and other representatives known to the division, of affected employees of the reporting employer. A copy of each report shall be posted by the employer in the location or locations where the carcinogen is used, which shall be conspicuous to affected employees, as shall be provided in the standards.
The division shall make every effort to ascertain the identities of existing users of carcinogens and to notify, inform, and educate them about the requirements of this part. The division shall utilize all appropriate means of communication and education, including direct mailings to employers, the use of courses, workshops, and seminars, advertising in mass media, trade and employee publications, and professional and scientific journals, contact with trade associations, employee representatives, and professional and scientific societies, and cooperation with other governmental agencies to inform affected employees, employers, and the public of the requirements of this part.
