State Fund, Cal/OSHA Co-Host Free Heat Illness Prevention Seminars for Employers

April 1, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- As part of its commitment to make California’s workplaces safer, State Fund is partnering with Cal/OSHA Consultation to offer a statewide series of over 25 heat illness prevention seminars. This is the fifth consecutive year State Fund is co-hosting these seminars to help spread awareness of the serious dangers of heat illness.

“The best way to beat heat illness is to prevent it from happening in the first place, and proper education will help achieve that goal,” said Chris Kaiser, Program Manager of State Fund’s Safety and Health Services Department. “Employers can receive that type of education right here in these seminars.”

The events are happening throughout the state from now until the end of June. Attendees will be shown best practice solutions for protecting their employees from heat-related illnesses. They will also learn how to update their safety programs to include a heat illness prevention plan and how to comply with heat illness standards.

The seminars are free and open to the public, and many of them will be presented in Spanish. To see when an event will be held in your area, visit the Safety & Seminars page at

The seminars are part of State Fund’s Employer Education Series offered throughout the state on a variety of workers’ compensation topics.
