As this week marks National Fire Prevention Week, Western Growers Insurance Services urges all members to revisit their respective fire safety programs and promote fire prevention awareness among employees.

Employers are responsible for providing safe and healthy workplaces for their employees. Some activities to consider conducting during National Fire Prevention Week include:

Cal/OSHA’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health has announced it intends to work on a permanent version of the COVID Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).  DOSH representatives met with its Advisory Committee to take comments on the proposal. 

DOSH wants the existing ETS, which is set to expire on January 14, 2022, to be readopted in December 2022 and expire in April 2022. The permanent standard would replace the readopted ETS and expire in April 2022.
