New Safety Material Now Available
CBIA strives to provide members with valuable risk management and safety resources. CBIA has partnered with State Fund to provide valuable safety material to members in an effort to create a safe workplace and maintain reasonable workers compensation rates.
As part of this effort, the complimentary pamphlets Tailgate Safety Topics for Construction and Heat Stress are now available.
There are four booklets in the Tailgate Safety Topics for Construction series. The booklets are designed to be used for regular safety meetings with work crews. They cover such topics as personal protection, equipment handling, back safety, general safety and injuries.
These tailgate meetings with workers are specifically required by CAL/OSHA for members of the construction industry every10 working days and weekly for tunneling crews. Meetings should be designed to keep workers alerted to the potential hazards they could encounter in the course of their work.
Heat Stress was developed by the Safety and Health Services Department of State Fund for employees who work outdoors during California's hot months. It covers risk factors, weather, job risk factors, managers' responsibilities and employees' responsibilities.
