Heat Illness Training Available for WG Members

As summer approaches, it is important to revisit Cal/OSHA regulations to help protect outdoor workers against heat-related illness and death. The State Compensation Insurance Fund has partnered with Cal/OSHA to offer Heat Illness Prevention Seminars free to the public on April 28-29 and May 19. 

The seminars will cover the requirements employers must meet to protect outdoor workers from heat illness onset and stay in in compliance with Cal/OSHA regulations. Additionally, presentations will include information on basic steps to prevent heat illness and how to detect warning signs and symptoms early. To register for any of the seminars below, contact [email protected] or call (707) 624-4572.
