Cal/OSHA Fines Kaiser Permanente $11,200

Santa Clara Facility Accused of Not Providing Workers with N95 Masks

Santa Clara, CA (October 14, 2020) – Cal/OSHA has fined a Kaiser Permanente psychiatric facility in Santa Clara for failing to provide workers with N95 masks and other protection against COVID-19. The citation includes a fine of $11,200 and is the first of many citations against Kaiser Permanente facilities across California for failing to acknowledge that COVID-19 can be transmitted via aerosol particles. 

Kaiser allegedly failed to comply with the state’s health and safety standards for aerosol transmissible diseases (ATD). Early studies showed that the coronavirus could survive in the air. In May, California instructed hospitals to comply with this, but Kaiser failed to do so. The hospital plans to appeal the fines.
