Workers Protection Standards

Field REI

The definition of a farm worker is a person who works in the field!

The fact that you may be a supervisor, researcher, or farm advisor doesn't make you exempt from these regulations.

California Department of Pesticide Regulation Training Pamphlets

Cal-OSHA's permanent heat illness regulation became effective July 27, 2006. The regulation, which is in Title 8: section 3395 of the General Industry Safety Orders, requires employers to provide water and shade to outdoor workers and training for these workers and their supervisors on the symptoms and treatment of heat illness.
