Napa, CA — State Compensation Insurance Fund and Cal-OSHA will host a seminar on heat illness prevention in Napa on May 24, as part of a statewide campaign to protect outdoor workers from heat illness, organizers announced.
The free seminar at the Solano-Napa Builders Exchange, 135 Camino Dorado, seeks to help prevent heat illness by encouraging employers to protect workers during hot summer weather, they said.
Attendees will learn best practice solutions for protecting employees from heat-related illnesses, how to comply with heat illness standards and update their safety programs to include a heat illness prevention plan, according to the announcement.
As an added incentive, event attendees can receive credit from Cal-OSHA and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement toward their Farm Labor Contractor continuing education requirement, the announcement notes.
Registration and complimentary continental breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m. and the presentation ends at 11 a.m, organizers said.
Early registration is encouraged. To register, contact Grace Virrey at (925) 523-5617 or visit the Safety & Seminars page at http://www.statefundca.com.
