California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle)

Health and Safety

It is the personal and professional commitment of CalRecycle's Health and Safety Program to ensure safe and healthful environments for CalRecycle staff, governmental agencies, and the public. CalRecycle meets these goals through consultation on health and safety issues, quality assurance/quality control, training and education, and prevention of illness and injury. The following information is included in this site:

  • Training Schedule. Information about upcoming health and safety-related training.
  • Reference Library. Information on the topic of health and safety.
  • OSHA Agreement. This memorandum of understanding (MOU) was entered into to allow the California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) to request OSHA evaluation of potential risks to worker health and safety at transfer/processing operations and facilities. This MOU was rescinded in May 2001 because Chapter 615, Statutes of 1999 (AB 1127, Steinberg) provides LEAs with a more effective means of referring issues concerning worker health and safety.
  • Maps and directions to our offices where the training is offered.

If you have any comments or questions about the Health and Safety Program please contact the staff listed at the bottom of this page.
