Sacramento – Today, Assemblymember Matt Haney (D-San Francisco) passed AB 2068 through the Senate Labor and Employment Committee to address language barriers in workplaces across California. Currently, California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) are only mandated to post workplace citations and special orders in English. AB 2068 would require postings prepared by Cal/OSHA to be translated into languages spoken by at least 5% of the workers at the worksite; most commonly Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog.
