Heat Stress and Wildfire Smoke: What You Need to Know
Thursday, May 26 | 11:00a-12:00p

Presenters: Corwyn Fischer and Dominique Damian, WA Farm Bureau Safety/Claims 

Join us for a presentation on two key initiatives affecting growers in 2022 – heat stress and wildfire smoke. The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries is poised to adopt emergency rules on both topics. L&I has had a heat stress rule since 2008. This year the agency will leave in place the current trigger temperatures and adopt new emergency rules for water, shade, training, cooling down periods, and acclimatization periods.    

Employers will need to incorporate additional workplace safety procedures for their employees and document those actions.  

Corwyn Fischer will dissect the heat stress rules, and Dominique Damian will address what you need to know about the impending wildfire smoke rules.

We will discuss these rule changes, determine best practices for complying with them, and offer advice on how to make necessary changes this year. 

Please email questions you would like to see covered during this webinar to Scott Dilley. We will also cover Q&A already received from members and answer your questions live.
