Help educate workers in your community about the dangers of working 
in the heat and how to prevent heat illness!

This free, 8-hour program is designed for educators and leaders from community organizations who can help reach workers at risk for heat illness.

After participating, you will be able to:

  • Lead heat awareness workshops with workers in your community, using an easy-to-follow community training guide.
  • Teach others about heat illness, how to prevent it, and the responsibilities of employers.
  • Describe this summer’s campaign, materials available, and ways workers can report problems to Cal/OSHA.

 

What we need from you:

  • Choose 2 – 3 staff or worker leaders from your organization to come to this training.
  • Think about the type of outreach and educational activities you will carry out after the training.  At the TOT, we will ask you to develop an action plan.
