Heat Illness Prevention Training April 4, Easton
Heat illness prevention training begins April 4 in Easton, Calif.
The first in a series of seminars to help educate farm labor contractors, growers and supervisors about heat illness prevention regulations will be held on Thursday, April 4, in Easton, Calif. The training will be held at the C.P.D.E.S. Hall, located at 172 W. Jefferson Ave.
Attendees will be able to take what they learn back to their own operations, ultimately educating thousands of farm employees. The seminar is designed to reduce the problems of heat illness injuries in agriculture by training participants about the dangers of heat-related injuries and how heat injuries can be prevented.
At the conclusion of the seminars, participants receive a certificate, as proof of completion. The agricultural industry encourages farmers who use the services of farm labor contractors to ask for this proof of completion of the heat illness program. This program is not a substitute for any of the state training required to obtain or maintain a farm labor contractor's license under the law, and cannot be used to meet any of those training requirements.
The Spanish session will begin at 10 a.m.; the English session will begin at 1 p.m.
Additional classes will be held in Bakersfield on April 11, Tulare on April 18 and Modesto on April 24.
