Fresno, CA – With warm weather approaching, California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health on April 4 launched its 2013 Heat Illness Prevention Program.

The goal of the program is to prevent heat illness among California workers through compliance with the state’s workplace safety regulations, the agency said in a press release. The campaign includes enforcement, outreach and training.

“By following the basic preventive measures of providing adequate water, rest, shade, training and emergency procedures at every outdoor worksite, we can avoid needless tragedies and make sure workers go home healthy after a hard day’s work,” Cal/OSHA Chief Ellen Widess said in the release.
