The California Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board recently granted Grimmway Farms a permanent variance for use of its tractor-mounted personnel platforms (TPP’s) 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, discusses Grimmway’s experience in seeking and obtaining approval to use the TPP’s and explain the process for obtaining approval.

Participants learn:

  • The regulations covering TPP’s
  • The various approaches to getting approval
  • The different types of variances and how to apply for each
  • The critical concept of “equivalent safety”
