We have only had a few days of spring, but it is already time to start thinking about the hot summer temperatures. Several organizations are getting together today to kick off heat illness training. Sabrina Hill gives the information of who is sponsoring the training seminars this year, along with the key targets for the seminars as well as what will be covered in the seminars.
Heat Illness Seminars Coming Up
The goal of this program is to ensure that all agricultural employers understand Regulation 3395 (Schwarzenegger, 2005) and the urgency of training their employees about heat stress and its dangers. Trained participants are expected to pass the information on to the individuals they supervise.
The training sessions are made possible through sponsorships and support from more than 20 of the largest agricultural organizations in the state.
