Seminar helps keep cool with OSHA ag labor heat rules

The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) will present another installment of its educational web seminars in mid-September.

“Turning Down the Heat: Preparing Employers for Proposed OSHA Heat Regulation,” will start at 2:30 p.m. Eastern/11:30 a.m. Pacific on Sept. 12.

Michael Marsh

“NCAE and its members continue the organization’s commitment to the health and safety of America’s essential farmworkers,” Michael Marsh, NCAE president and CEO, said in a news release. “The event will examine the current state of agricultural heat regulations across the country, discuss how agricultural employers can protect their employees in the face of changing environmental conditions, and prepare employers with factual information to inform their comments in OSHA’s rulemaking process.”

“Turning Down the Heat” will be moderated by Shawn Packer, principal member of JPH Law. Panelists are Bryan Little, chief operating officer of the California Farm Bureau’s Farm Employers Labor Service; Jon DeVaney, president of the Washington State Tree Fruit Association; Roberta Gruber, FEELDS Program Director of the Oregon Farm Bureau Federation; and Brenda Jacklitsch, Health Scientist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Small Business Assistance Program.

Panelists will share their experiences with existing heat rules in California, Washington, and Oregon, and the CDC perspective.

Participants will be eligible to receive one Professional Development Credit from the Society for Human Resource Management upon completion of the webinar.

“Our educational and compliance webinars are extremely popular and typically fill up very quickly,” Marsh said. “Please register as soon as possible to ensure you secure your spot in this

important discussion.”
