Contractors “Who Cheat to Compete” Face Stiff Penalties

New partnership targets offenders in the multi-billion dollar underground economy By CSLB

SACRAMENTO, CA – The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) already is seeing results from a new multi-agency partnership that targets individuals who are breaking the law and making it increasingly difficult for law-abiding licensed contractors to compete for business. CSLB estimates that on any given day, tens of thousands of licensed contractors and unlicensed operators are breaking the law and contributing to the state’s underground economy. These individuals and companies will be at the top of the Labor Enforcement Task Force (LETF) target list. LETF, which was launched January 1, 2012, is comprised of investigators from CSLB, the Department of Industrial Relations, Employment Development Department, and Board of Equalization, in collaboration with the Insurance Commissioner and Attorney General’s Office. Partners have broadened information-sharing and the use of new enforcement technology to improve the way they target businesses in the underground economy.

ary 2012 that have resulted in dozens of citations and thousands of dollars in fines. The operations are not limited to weekdays; at least one operation has taken place on a weekend and more are on the calendar. A recent operation in Orange County resulted in administrative actions against a long-time illegal operator. Benito German Lopez Cruz, 47, of Orange, is believed to have underbid legitimate contractors on plastering jobs by hundreds of thousands of dollars during the past several years. A CSLB investigator cited Lopez for contracting without a license and failing to secure workers’ compensation insurance for three employees who were working with him. The citation comes with $4,500 in fines. The Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Labor Standards Enforcement issued Lopez a stop order (that prohibits the use of employee labor until they are covered by workers’ compensation insurance) and citations for $7,750 in fines for failure to carry workers’ compensation and for paying employees in cash. Lopez also will be audited by the Employment Development Department.

“Contractors need to understand that they can’t cheat to compete,” said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. “By combining our resources and sharing A criminal case settled last week highlights the seinformation like never before, we will target and vere consequences of these types of business and find the worst offenders, licensed or not.” contracting violations.

failing to pay insurance premiums for unclaimed employees who were paid in cash. In 2009, CSLB revoked the contractor license of So Cal Roofing Company (#797707), owned by Holley. The criminal activity came to light after an incident in March 2003, when one of Holley’s employees fell off of a roof and was injured. When that employee filed a workers’ compensation insurance claim, Holley denied that the injured employee worked for him. He also had filed paperwork with CSLB certifying that he had no employees. According to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, in February 2010 Holley agreed to plead guilty to multiple felony counts associated with insurance and tax fraud. Holley purchased a minimum workers’ compensation policy from the State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF) and failed to state that he employed subcontractors, paid workers in cash to hide the fact that So Cal Roofing Company had workers, hired unlicensed employees, and leased employees from other companies. He received insurance based on his false declarations, allowing him to underpay his insurance premiums. In addition, to hide the fraud and to avoid paying state taxes, Holley failed to file an accurate tax return. In addition to construction, LETF addresses illegal activity in the agricultural, automotive, garment, restaurant, and warehouse industries. Visit www. cslb.ca.gov for more information.

Builder Breakfast March 20, 2012 Cal OSHA Consult ation Service Regulation Changes Update Tuesday, March 20, 2012 from 9 to 10am Location: SBCA Office 914 A Santa Barbara Street Guest Speaker Dan Leiner, Area Manager Cal/OSHA Consultation Service t Cal/OSHA’s Ladder regulations were updated in January 2011 and again in January 2012. Some of the major changes includes care, use, set-up, inspection and maintenance of ladders. Employees using ladders are now required to be trained on ladder safety. t Cal/OSHA’s Personal Protective Devices regulation was updated in April 2011. These changes require employers to conduct a hazard assessment that addresses the need, selection, and use of PPE such as head, eye, face, hand, and foot protection. This information must be communicated to employees. The hazard assessment must be in writing and certified by the employer. While construction activity is exempt from the hazard assessment, work performed in shops (such as cabinet making and granite fabrication) is covered. t Cal/OSHA has kicked off a Confined Space Emphasis Initiative to educate employers and employees of the dangers of confined spaces. A confined space in the construction industry is defined as any type of space that has both of the following: t Existing ventilation that is not sufficient to remove dangerous air contamination, too little oxygen or too much oxygen which either exists or may develop. Dangerous air contamination is an atmosphere that presents a threat of causing death, injury, acute illness, or disablement due to the presence of flammable and/or explosive, toxic, or otherwise injurious or incapacitating substances. t Access for the removal for a suddenly disabled employee is difficult due to the location and/or size of the openings.

PREVENTING STRAINS AND SPRAINS Lifting, pushing, and overreaching are common causes of strains and sprains. Any job that requires you to sit or stand bent in an awkward position for long periods of time can cause excess stress and strain on muscles. Most strains and sprains affect the back, arms, and shoulders. However, there are some very simple things you can do to prevent or minimize body strains and sprains. Many strains and sprains occur because of poor material handling. Workers lift things that weigh too much or they lift incorrectly. Lift correctly by bending your knees, not your back. Carry loads close to your body. Injuries can occur when workers try to pull or lift a heavy or awkward object without help or lift an object while twisting from the waist. When carrying a load, avoid bending or lifting upward unnecessarily. Keep as much of the load as you can at waist level. Get help with heavy loads. Dont try to move or lift an object you cant handle. Instead of lifting a 75-pound load, break it down into smaller parts. If you cant break it down, get help from a mechanical device or lift it with another worker. Make sure moving equipment works properly or it will cause you to strain unnecessarily just trying to get it to work. If the wheels on a cart are not aligned, you could strain your arms, shoulders, and back trying to move it. Change your working positions frequently. Chronic strain due to an unchanging work position can weaken your back, arms, and shoulders. Adjust working heights to prevent slumping or excessive reaching. A vicious cycle develops when chronic strain continues; muscles become less able to withstand strenuous activity and grow more prone to injury of all kinds. Stretch during the day to increase your flexibility. Take body relaxation breaks by letting your shoulders and neck muscles go limp; swivel your head or arms or flex your hands and fingers. Take care of your whole body with exercise, proper posture, a sensible diet and adequate rest. If your muscles or ligaments have weakened over time from lack of exercise or age, you are more apt to get a strain or sprain than if your are physically fit.

CÓMO EVITAR TORCEDURAS Y ESFUERZOS EXCESIVOS Levantar o empujar objetos pesados o tratar de alcanzar demasiado lejos son causas comunes de torceduras y lesiones musculares. Cualquier tarea que requiera sentarse o estar de pie con la cintura doblada en una posición incómoda por períodos de tiempo largos puede ocasionar tensión y esfuerzos excesivos en los músculos. La mayoría de las torceduras afectan la espalda, los brazos y los hombros. Sin embargo, hay cosas muy sencillas que pueden hacerse para evitar o minimizar torceduras y lesiones musculares. Muchas torceduras y lesiones musculares ocurren por el mal manejo de objetos. Los trabajadores levantan cosas que pesan demasiado o las levantan en forma incorrecta. La manera correcta de levantar un objeto pesado es doblando las rodillas, no la espalda. Los objetos pesados se deben llevar cerca del cuerpo. Pueden ocurrir lesiones cuando un trabajador trata de levantar un objeto pesado o incómodo de manejar sin pedir ayuda, o levantar un objeto pesado mientras tuerce la cintura. Cuando lleve una carga pesada, evite doblarse hacia adelante o levantar hacia arriba innecesariamente. Mantenga lo más que pueda de la carga al nivel de la cintura. Busque ayuda para levantar objetos pesados. No trate de mover o levantar un objeto si es demasiado pesado para usted solo. En lugar de levantar una carga de 75 libras, divídala en cargas más pequeñas. Si no puede dividirla, use un dispositivo mecánico o levántela con la ayuda de otra persona. Asegúrese de que los equipos para mover cargas pesadas funcionen correctamente, de otra manera usted puede esforzarse de más simplemente tratando de hacerlos funcionar. Si las ruedas de una carretilla no están alineadas producirán exceso de esfuerzo en los brazos, hombros y espalda cuando trate de moverla. Cambie su posición de trabajo con frecuencia. Los esfuerzos crónicos debidos a una posición de trabajo inalterada pueden lastimarle la espalda, los brazos o los hombros. Ajuste las alturas del trabajo para evitar tener que doblarse hacia adelante o alcanzar demasiado lejos. Cuando un esfuerzo crónico continúa, se crea un círculo vicioso; los músculos pierden su habilidad de tolerar actividades extenuantes y se vuelven más propensos a lesiones de todo tipo. Estírese durante el día para aumentar la flexibilidad de sus músculos. Tome tiempo para descansar dejando que los músculos de los hombros y del cuello se relajen; gire la cabeza o los brazos o flexione las manos y los dedos. Cuide todo su cuerpo con ejercicios, buena postura, buena dieta y descanso adecuado. Si sus músculos o ligamentos se han debilitado con el tiempo por falta de ejercicio o edad avanzada, usted tendrá más probabilidades de sufrir una torcedura, que si se encuentra en buenas condiciones físicas.

When is a worker an employee? For contractors the question is critical to doing business legally in California.

I now want to start a separate parking lot maintenance and striping business. I’m trying to ance policy. figure out the best way to move forward. I have Q: Our Company is a Limited Liability Company striped many parking lots that we have built us-

ing my “A” license. If we intend to concentrate on striping with this new company, would I need to get a “C-32” license or would an “A” be sufficient? If I have to get a “C-32” I hope my experience striping lots in the past will suffice (there have been many). I would probably want to incorporate this new company. A: While the “A” (General Engineering) classification would likely suffice, I would recommend applying for the “C-32” (Parking and Highway Improvement). “A” contractors can properly handle a wide variety of projects that are also performed under a specialty “C” license. For example, General Engineering contractors can handle virtually all aspects of the “C-12” (Earthwork and Paving), “C-34” (Pipeline), “C-42” (Sanitation Systems), “C-46” (Solar) and “C-32” classifications. However, what I’ve found over the years is that some owners (both public and private) specify or, at a minimum, prefer the contractor to have the specialty class. Since you have done many parking improvement projects, call us to discuss how you may qualify for a waiver of the “C-32” trade exam.

SANTA BARBARA CONTRACTORS ASSOCIATION WEEKLY NEWSLETTER March 7, 2012

Why You Should Attend OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY HAS BEEN AND CONTINUES TO BE A CHALLENGING ASPECT FOR BUSINESSES OF ALL SIZES AND INDUSTRIES. WITH PROGRESSIVE CHANGES from both Federal and California OSHA, coupled with economic variableness, employers are challenged with compliance while maintaining a competitive business advantage. Training is one key area that cannot be compromised even in difficult times. The Safety Expo will help your company cut costs while preventing injuries on the shop floor, as well as the construction site, through synergistic training involving aspects of general and construction industries. The Safety Expo is recognized for their commitment to safety, and they owe that to the importance they place on developing people through training. Developing employees at all levels that are competent in safety (meaning those that possess the knowledge, skills, and experience to perform safely consistently) is critical to any operation. The Safety Expo will provide opportunities to develop safety competencies through seminars, workshops, and visiting the vendors. Employees who attend will be able to bring back new innovations and more economical ways to keep employees and their families safe. This new knowledge can also help your company stay in the forefront of safety initiatives. The Safety Expo is a unique experience because of the ability to meet the safety training needs of both general and construction industries.

SANTA BARBARA CONTRACTORS ASSOCIATION WEEKLY NEWSLETTER March 7, 2012

new this year FOR THE FIRST TIME, INDUSTRY PARTNERS HAVE BEEN INVITED TO PRESENT KEY NOTE SESSIONS—invited key note presenters will include Don Bradway, Independent Safety Consultant, presenting “Selfish Safety;” Kevin Thompson, Editor, Cal/OSHA Reporter, will present, “2012: A Transformative Year?” Fred Walter and Lisa Prince, Walter & Prince, LLP, well-known defense and contractor advocates, will be returning to give their unique perspective on how contractors can best deal with the shifting regulatory environment. Expo is launching the OSHA Regulatory Track—Richard DaRosa with Cal/OSHA Consultation presents sessions from a regulatory stand-point on Injury and Illness Prevention Program and the Heat Illness Standard; and the New Crane Regulations will be presented by Mike Donlon, and Gary McIver will present the “Dos, Don’ts and Truth” from the inspector’s point of view. Expo is introducing the Contractor Tool & Equipment Liquidation Sale—selling flea market-style, new and used tools, and equipment at drastically reduced prices. Registered attendees with badges qualify for additional discounts. Partnership Marketplace vendors will be strategically placed throughout the campus in close proximity to classes and sessions for optimum exposure to attendees, buyers and existing clients. For additional information on the Expo as well as any updates will be posted on the Expo website at sacsafetyexpo.com. Any tools or pieces of equipment purchased are in agreement between buyer and seller; Expo does not guaranty or is liable for any of the tools and equipment sold and/or purchased. 2

Meet with other industry Professionals Trade show vendors are a crucial component to the overall success of the program. Without exhibitors who support this event by displaying their products and services, the quality of sessions and professional training could not be offered at the rates this event provides. The Annual Expo “Partnership Marketplace” trade show is unique in that it’s the only one of its kind in Northern California, and includes a multitude of products, equipment and services – the trade show is complimentary to all Expo attendees!

While it is the most frequently cited Cal/OSHA violation, more importantly, it’s the basis upon which the rest of your health and safety program rests. Without that foundation the rest of your program can break down more easily. Come and learn about the eight basic elements and learn what they should look like in your company. The ninth element, though optional, can be the most important, i.e., having a labor/management health and safety committee. When you want to move from meeting the minimum criteria to being proactive then you need to have true worker involvement. Having the whole crew invested in health and safety means having active participants where the responsibilities and the rewards are shared. Part 2–As a contractor are you aware that you are required by Cal/OSHA to conduct effective tailgate trainings and other types of trainings? Maybe, you are doing these trainings but in the back of your mind wonder if they are doing any good? Maybe you are wondering if your Spanish-speaking workers understand what the hazards are on the job-site? The elements of effective safety training, the limitations of written materials and why visual media and hands-on methods are often more effective will be presented and discussed. A bilingual video for contractors on lead paint and ladder safety will be given out to all participants to use as part of your training sacsafetyexpo.com

Before starting a job, Flaggers are encouraged to talk with their supervisor and familiarize themselves with the work area, specific job site hazards and proper flagging procedures. Because flaggers are responsible for the public safety and make the greatest number of contacts with the public of all highway or construction workers, they should be trained in safe traffic control practices and public contact techniques. This is why the Safety Expo offers this hands-on and interactive training following the classroom bookwork. A special flagger training course has been setup in the parking lot with moving vehicles and real life simulations.
