Workplace Safety

All workers have a right to a safe and humane working environment.

A lack of adequate enforcement of California's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) laws and / or insufficient standards put many workers at risk.
The Green Party supports workplace safety:
Protect and enforce California's OSHA laws. We insist on adequate testing of equipment, and we should adequately fund enforcement procedures.
Inform workers of workplace hazards. Employers have a responsibility to protect workers from those hazards.
Legislate full funding for worker safety programs passed at both the state and federal levels.
Insist on agricultural practices that don't endanger farm workers.
Put agricultural practices under the jurisdiction of OSHA.
