This document was prepared at the request of the California Department of Industrial Relations and the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers' Compensation. Its objective is to examine the role of different inspection types in the enforcement program of the California Department of Industrial Relations Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal-OSHA) program and to identify changes that might be considered, as well as areas for further study. The chief audience for the study is the community concerned with occupational safety and health nationally, but especially in California.

The research described in this report was prepared for the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers' Compensation and conducted by the RAND Center for Health and Safety in the Workplace.
