Employers are urged to continue investing in workplace safetyApril 21, 2014 – The Department of Industrial Relations has announced they will suspend the high profile Targeted Inspection and Consultation Fund’s (TICF) yearly assessment program.
The Cal/OSHA TICF is part of the workers compensation insurance reform legislation passed by the California Legislature in July 1993. Under the program, insured employers with an experience modification rating (ExMOD) of 125% or higher were subject to an assessment penalty based on the annual payroll for the assessment year. The Department has not billed insured employers for TICF assessments after the 2012 assessment year.
The Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) states the Labor Code Section 62.9, the legal mandate for the assessment, will be repealed as of June 30, 2014.
