Trainings and Materials available through 2012 Heat Illness Prevention Campaign
This summer Cal/OSHA is taking a multi-faceted approach to protecting California’s outdoor workers from heat illness that includes a combination of media, education, outreach and enforcement efforts.
The radio and outdoor advertising span much of the state, and are enhanced by educational resources in five languages – Spanish, Hmong, Punjabi, Mixteco and English. Strategically targeting the most underserved population of outdoor workers, the campaign addresses heat safety precautions and worker rights.
To find out more about the campaign and to preview all materials, visit the bilingual English/Spanish website at www.99calor.org.
