CSLB Turns Up Heat on Illegal and Deceptive Internet Advertisements New warning after second wave of multi-state enforcement operations

SACRAMENTO — For the second time in three months, the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) has teamed up with contracting boards from around the country, as well as the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA), to draw attention to illegal and deceptive ads on popular Internet bulletin boards like craigslist. The agencies are warning consumers who are looking for a contractor and who use craigslist or other similar websites about the extreme risk of hiring someone whose only goal is to rip them off.

costs) must be conducted by a company or person with a contractor license issued by CSLB. A total of 36 individuals were arrested and now face misdemeanor charges of contracting without a license (Business and Professions Code section 7028). Two of those arrested are registered sex offenders; another is a convicted felon for statutory rape. One individual was caught in a CSLB sting in 2010 and now faces a mandatory 90-day jail sentence if convicted a second time. Thirty of the individuals also will be charged with illegal advertising (Business and Professions Code section 7027.1). State law requires contractors to place their license number in all print, broadcast, and online advertisements. Those without a license can advertise to perform jobs valued at less than $500, but the ad must state that they are not a licensed contractor.

“While craigslist serves as a valuable free tool for legitimately licensed and insured contractors, the number of illegal and deceptive ads is growing like wildfire,” said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. “As a result, it’s difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to figure out who’s legitimate and A number of others will be charged with requesting an excessive down payment (Business and who isn’t.” Professions Code section 7159.5). In California, a Last week, contractor boards in seven states (Ari- down payment cannot exceed 10 percent of the zona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, contract total or $1,000, whichever is less.

to comply with a Stop Order can result in misdemeanor charges and penalties, including 60 days in jail and/or up to $10,000 in fines. The issue of illegal online advertising isn’t new. CSLB addressed the problem with craigslist in 2006 and 2007. As a result, craigslist has a link to contractor license information at the top of its “Skilled Trade Services” page, and to the California Department of Consumer Affairs website. The company also added an additional step into the advertisement posting process that requires the user to indicate whether he or she is licensed. Regrettably, unlicensed operators quickly found a way around the requirement and now the process is virtually useless. CSLB has tried, unsuccessfully, to have craigslist address these concerns. In addition, unlicensed operators also are advertising in different sections of the website; a number of targets from last week’s sting had ads in the “Household Services” section.

Remember Contractor Advertising Laws Any time you advertise your contracting business, you are required to include your state-issued contractor license number somewhere in the ad or within the document. Your CSLB number must be included in newspapers, radio, television, and online ads; on busiContinued on page 18

HAZARDOUS MATERIAL DISPOSAL Many businesses generate wastes that are considered hazardous or harmful to human health or the environment because they are flammable, corrosive, reactive, or toxic. Due to the harmful potential of hazardous materials, workers must remain aware of the safety hazards and proper handling and disposal procedures in order to protect the environment, themselves, and comply with state and federal regulations. Workers that generate or handle hazardous waste require training on the hazards and safe, proper handling of these materials. Training should cover the procedures for collection, labeling, and storage of the hazardous waste before it is transported for final disposal or treatment. In addition, workers should be trained on emergency procedures and accidental spill response for the materials that they work with. Hazardous materials should never be disposed of down the drain or in regular trash receptacles. They should be put into proper and compatible containers that can be securely sealed. Compatible container materials ensure that wastes will not react with or corrode them. The containers should not be completely full; a “head space” allows for waste expansion. The sealed containers should be labeled with the name and hazard class of the waste along with the words ‘Hazardous Waste’ and the date it was generated. Waste containers should be stored in a secure manner and protected from extreme environments. They should be segregated and stored in compatible hazard classes (flammable, corrosive, oxidizers, etc.) to prevent hazardous reactions if the wastes combine. The containers should remain closed during storage, except when adding or removing waste. Proper handling and storage of waste containers can prevent ruptures, overturns, or other failures. They should not be stacked or handled in a manner that could cause them to fail. Some flammable material containers may require grounding and containers should be seismically secured, if possible, to prevent spills in an earthquake. Waste storage time limits vary depending on the facility or material; workers should be familiar with the requirements for their worksite and wastes. Storage areas for hazardous wastes should be inspected at least weekly. Secondary containment can prevent spills, but if a leak or spill occurs, workers should follow facility spill and emergency response procedures. Spill kits should be available for such emergencies; all cleanup materials should be handled as hazardous waste. Proper waste documentation is important to track and maintain accountability for hazardous waste prior to shipment. Workers should be familiar with the documents required for their facility and waste types including EPA Identification numbers issued by the Environmental Protection Agency and Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifests. Workers must receive training before they can sign waste manifest documentation. Transportation of hazardous wastes should be done according to regulation requirements and by dedicated hazardous waste haulers. Proper training and knowledge can help workers ensure that hazardous wastes are safely and properly handled from “cradle to grave.”

DESECHO DE MATERIALES PELIGROSOS Muchos negocios generan desperdicios que se consideran peligrosos o dañinos a la salud humana o la medio ambiente porque son inflamables, corrosivos, reactivos o tóxicos. Debido al potencial dañino de los materiales peligrosos, los trabajadores deben permanecer conscientes de los peligros a la seguridad, el manejo apropiado y los procedimientos de desecho con el objeto de proteger al ambiente, a sí mismos y cumplir con los reglamentos federales y estatales. Los trabajadores que generan o manejan desperdicios peligrosos requieren capacitación sobre sus peligros y sobre el manejo seguro y apropiado de estos materiales. Esta capacitación debe cubrir los procedimientos para recolección, rotulado y almacenaje de los desperdicios peligrosos antes de que se transporten a su sitio de desecho o tratamiento final. Además, los trabajadores deben capacitarse en procedimientos de emergencia y respuesta a derrames accidentales de los materiales con los que trabajan. Los materiales peligrosos nunca se deben desechar tirándolos por un sumidero ni en recipientes de basura comunes. Se deben poner en recipientes compatibles apropiados que se puedan sellar herméticamente. Los recipientes compatibles aseguran que los desperdicios no reaccionen con los recipientes ni los corroan. Los recipientes no se deben llenar por completo, sino que se debe dejar un espacio arriba para la expansión de los desperdicios. Los recipientes sellados se deben rotular con el nombre y la clase de sustancia peligrosa que contienen, junto con las palabras “Hazardous Waste” (Desperdicios Peligrosos) y la fecha en que se generaron. Los recipientes de desperdicios se deben almacenar de forma segura y protegerse contra ambientes extremos. Debe segregarse y almacenarse en clases de sustancias peligrosas compatibles (inflamables, corrosivas, oxidantes, etc.) para evitar reacciones peligrosas si los desperdicios llegan a entrar en contacto. Los recipientes deben permanecer cerrados durante su almacenaje, excepto cuando sea necesario añadir o extraer desperdicios. Con el manejo y almacenaje apropiado de los recipientes de desperdicios se pueden evitar roturas, vuelcos y otras fallas en los recipientes. No se deben apilar ni manejar de manera que pueda ocasionarse su falla. Los recipientes de algunas sustancias inflamables pueden requerir conectarse a tierra y los recipientes deben estar sujetos contra sismos, si es posible, para prevenir derrames en caso de un sismo. Los límites de tiempo para el almacenaje de desperdicios varían según el sitio o el material; los trabajadores deben familiarizarse con los requerimientos para su sitio de trabajo y sus desperdicios. Las áreas de almacenaje para desperdicios peligrosos deben inspeccionarse al menos cada semana. Una contención secundaria puede prevenir derrames, pero si ocurre una fuga o derrame, los trabajadores deben seguir los procedimientos de respuesta de emergencia de su sitio de trabajo contra derrames. Debe haber kits de respuesta a derrames disponibles para dichas emergencias y todos los materiales resultantes de la limpieza se deben tratar como desechos peligrosos también. La documentación correcta de los desperdicios es importante para poder hacer seguimiento y mantener la responsabilidad de los desperdicios peligrosos antes de su transporte. Los trabajadores deben familiarizarse con los documentos requeridos para su sitio de trabajo y sus tipos de desperdicios, incluyendo los números de identificación de la EPA emitidos por la Agencia de Protección Ambiental (Environmental Protection Agency) y los Manifiestos Uniformes de Desperdicios Peligrosos (Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifests). Los trabajadores deben recibir capacitación antes de que se les permita firmar la documentación de manifiestos de desperdicios. El transporte de los desperdicios peligrosos debe hacerse según los reglamentos y sólo por transportistas dedicados al transporte de desperdicios peligrosos. Una capacitación y conocimientos apropiados pueden ayudar a los trabajadores a asegurar que los desperdicios peligrosos se manejen de forma segura y apropiada desde su creación hasta su desecho final.

illegal advertising and/or requesting an excessive down payment. According to the Board, “eight of the phony contractors were issued Stop Orders”. Additionally, the participating Contracting Boards along with the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) again issued a nationwide consumer alert regarding irregularities on the Internet. According to CSLB Registrar Steve Sands, “While Craigslist serves as a valuable free tool for legitimately licensed and insured contractors, the number of illegal and deceptive ads is growing like wildfire”. The Arizona sting led to 9 unlicensed contractor investigations. The ROC routinely refers unlicensed contracting cases to the Maricopa County Attorney’s office for prosecution. Not only are these State agencies trying to protect consumers by deterring illegal construction activities, but they also aim to level the playing field for legitimate contractors in the industry.

Tailgate/Toolbox Topics TT-7: Feb 2006

Division of Occupational Safety and Health California Department of Industrial Relations

Setting Up a Tailgate/Toolbox Safety Meeting Tailgate or Toolbox safety meetings are 10-15 minute on-thejob meetings held to keep employees alert to work-related accidents and illnesses. Tailgate/toolbox safety meetings have proved their worth by alerting employees to workplace hazards, and by preventing accidents, illnesses and on-the-job injuries. Why Have Them? In both the tunneling and construction industries, tailgate safety meetings are required by Title 8, Sections 8406 and 1509 of the California Code of Regulations. While tunneling and construction are the only industries that specifically require tailgate safety meetings, all California employers must have a safety program that includes employee training in safe work practices. Tailgate/toolbox safety meetings can be used to address actual problems on the job or in the shop. The supervisor leading the meeting can draw on the experience of workers, and use that experience to remind all employees –especially newer ones – of the dangers of working with particular kinds of machinery, tools, equipment and materials. What to Talk About? Talk about work practices, machinery, tools, equipment materials, attitudes, and anything else that may cause or contribute to a work-related accident or illness. Keep the topic relevant to the job or tasks at hand. An excellent source for construction related topics is the publication Cal/OSHA Pocket Guide for the Construction Industry. Supervisors can choose individual sections or topics and relate them to their specific site requirements. Copies can be ordered from the Division of Occupational Safety and Health. Choose a topic you think needs safety review. If you notice that spills aren’t being cleaned up promptly, discuss it. If there has been an accident or a near-accident on the job, talk about it. What happened? Where did it happen? How can it be prevented from happening again? Encourage employees to suggest topics. They often know best - what and where the dangers are. How to Run a Good Meeting 1. Hold the meeting on the job, preferably where everyone can sit and relax. 2. Hold meetings at the beginning of shift or after a break. 3. Choose the topic carefully. Topics should be about health and safety problems on the job. Research the problem before the meeting. For machinery, consult the manufacturer’s operations manual. For handling toxic substances, get a copy of the material safety data sheet. Your company’s insurance carrier is another good source

4. 5.

of information. Cal/OSHA also supplies a wide range of printed material on worksite safety and health. Don’t choose too broad a topic. Encourage employee participation - keep your meeting short.

Sample Topic for Tailgate/Toolbox Safety Meetings: Why are guards left off machines? Guards are placed on machines to prevent workers from contacting moving parts. They are required by Cal/OSHA regulations. Many California workers are killed or injured every year because guards are removed and not replaced. Why are guards left off? Ask the group to give reasons. Some common ones are: ♦ I didn’t have time to replace the guard. ♦ I wanted to make sure the machine was working okay. I just never got around to replacing the guard. ♦ I put on a new drive and the old guard didn’t fit. ♦ I had to remove the guard to adjust the machine. ♦ I couldn’t work with the guard on. It slowed me down. ♦ Listen I’ve run these machines for years without guards and I’ve never been hurt. These excuses have been given countless times. After the accident has happened, the guard is replaced and strict rules are enforced. Of course, it’s too late for the victim. The purpose of meeting on this topic is to make sure rules are enforced before an accident can happen.

Resources: Cal/OSHA Pocket Guide for the Construction Industry. Copies can be ordered from the Cal/OSHA publications website at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dosh/puborder.asp, or obtained from a Cal/OSHA District Office. Cal/OSHA Construction Safety Orders can be reviewed at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/Title8/sub4.html Note: The information provided is not meant to be either a substitute for or legal interpretation of the occupational safety and health regulations. Readers are cautioned to refer directly to Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations for detailed information regarding the regulation’s scope, specifications, and exceptions and for other requirements that may be applicable to their operations.
