Consultation helps remove hazards, lower accident rates, save money, and boost profitability
Learn how to reduce preventable occupational injuries and illnesses by using Cal/OSHA Consultation Services. Agriculture is one of the most hazardous industrial activities in California.

Learn about high risk activities including but not limited to the following:
- Heat illness when working outdoors in high temperatures and becoming dehydrated - proper shade, rest breaks, written policy for heat illness prevention, plenty of cool water, early symptoms, training, best practices and requirements.
