Cal/OSHA reminds all employers with outdoor workers to be prepared and take the necessary precautions to prevent
heat illness, as high temperatures continue throughout the state this week. Employers in California must take steps to
protect outdoor workers from heat illness by providing water, rest, shade and training.

employers to provide outdoor workers fresh water, access to shade at 80 degrees and whenever requested by a
worker, cool-down rest breaks in addition to regular breaks and maintain a written prevention plan with training on the
signs of heat illness and what to do in case of an emergency.

Crop Reminders
If you have concerns regarding your crops tonnage coming in lighter due to excessive heat, frost, or any other reason,
we recommend contacting your crop insurance agent as soon as possible to discuss.
Per Kristine Fox, Pan American Insurance Services, CAWG's preferred provider: " You should report notice of damage
or a lighter crop as soon as possible, but no later than 60 days after the last pick, by variety type. If you are reporting
after 60 days, your claim will be denied. If there are any smoke exposure concerns, make sure samples from each block
are taken for testing prior to harvest. As a reminder, there are no penalties to file a crop insurance claim, regardless of
the outcome. " | Page 5
