Capitol Connection Q & A for Contractors By Shauna Krause, President, Capitol Services, Inc. While the law in contractor’s regulation is black and white, how those words are interpreted has always been a ‘gray’ area where expert advice is often advised. Can a Sole Proprietor keep some parts of his license active while also qualifying someone else? Maybe, maybe not as we all learn from his question…

Q: I have a CA Contractor’s License with 3 classifications: “C-8”(Concrete), “C-27” (Landscaping), and a “C-29” (Masonry). It is now a Sole Proprietor license. I want to be a Responsible Managing Employee (RME) for a new corporation but the company only needs the “C-27”. I know that since I’m an RME I am going to have de-activate the “C-27” classification on my indiQ: I frequently read your articles and often vidual license, but is there a way to still keep the times you refer to certain trades being “inciden- other two classifications active? tal and supplemental” to the classification that a contractor holds. How does the CSLB define A: There are limited circumstances in which incidental and supplemental? It seems that a RME can qualify two active licenses at the contractors could use these terms broadly to same time however the situation you described perform work out of the scope of their license. doesn’t appear to fall under those circumstances. There is no way to inactivate particular clasA: Board Rule 831 states “for purposes of Sec- sifications on a license while keeping the others active.

We have already updated the Secrework, or he may use his own employees to do tary of State with the changes. We plan to file the changes with the CSLB to update our liso.”

EXPO Speaker

cense as well, but it is my understanding that each of the new Officers will be required to get fingerprinted, so the process of adding them to the license could take several weeks. In the interim, are those individuals permitted to sign contracts? A: To the best of my knowledge, your company ultimately decides who has the authority to sign contracts. I am not aware of any CSLB law or rule that regulates who can and cannot sign contracts on behalf of the company. With that said, as long as your corporation approves of the new Officers signing contracts, have them sign away! While knowledge is power, knowing where to go for the answers is half the battle. Get expert assistance immediately when you call 866-443-0657, email info@cutredtape.com, or write us at Capitol Services, Inc., 1225 8th St. Ste. 580, Sacramento, CA 95814.

Tailgate/Toolbox Topics

Revised: Oct 2011

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 onthe-job 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 (3203). 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 that workers perform. 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. Use the table in the next page to record the trainings. Choose a topic you think needs safety review. For example, 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

36

Data Sheet (MSDS). Your insurance carrier is another good source of information. Cal/OSHA also provides educational materials on worksite safety and health. 4.Don’t choose too broad a topic. 5.Encourage employee participation. 6.Keep your meeting short - usually 10 to 15 minutes. 7.Use the table in the next page as both a field reference and a resource for tailgate subjects. Supervisors should chose topics that directly relate to their projects and site tasks, and remember to: x Pick from the subjects listed on this table. x Read the material before discussing it. x Determine the amount of material to be presented.

Sample Topic for Meetings Why are guards left off machines? Guards are placed on machines to prevent workers from contacting the 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: x I didn’t have time to replace the guard. x I wanted to make sure the machine was working okay. I just never got around to replacing the guard. x I put on a new drive and the old guard didn’t fit. x I had to remove the guard to adjust the machine. x I couldn’t work with the guard on. It slowed me down. x 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.
