For three days during June, inspectors from the California Department of Industrial Relations made surpise visits to 60 tract home developers in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. A second series of inspections is planned for an unknown date and location in July. The surprise inspections are intended to dramatically raise of the visibility of the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, known as Cal-OSHA, and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, which oversees pay and overtime regulations. The five year plan by the Department calls for monthly surprise inspections like these. Is this good or bad news for the state's residential developers?
