Workplace Safety

Farms in California adhere to the most stringent safety standards in the world. The California Strawberry Commission promotes a safe and productive workplace by offering growers, human resource professionals and management-level employees training in heat illness prevention and sexual harassment prevention, among other topics so growers can navigate the complex standards required to ensure a safe workplace.

Sexual Harassment Prevention

Participants will learn to identify different kinds of sexual harassment, how to respond to sexual harassment situations, and the requirement of a sexual harassment policy. Class includes information and practical guidance related to regulations, prohibitions, prevention, correction and remedies for sexual harassment at work. 

This class meets the requirements of AB 1825, which requires California employers with 50 or more employees to provide two hours of training to all supervisory employees once every two years.

Heat Illness Prevention

This class covers all aspects of heat illness prevention for supervisors: shade, water, signs, and symptoms of heat illness, worker training, and how to develop an emergency action plan.
