Join us for a webinar on April 30 to learn how to obtain approval to use the Tractor-Mounted Personnel Platforms (TPPs).

The California Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board recently granted Grimmway Farms a permanent variance for use of its tractor-mounted personnel platforms to transport irrigation workers in the fields. This webinar, conducted by Joel H. Sherman, Grimmway’s Director, Safety & Workers' Compensation and Jason Resnick, Western Growers' Vice President and General Counsel, will discuss Grimmway’s experience in seeking and obtaining approval to use the TPPs and explain the process for obtaining approval.
