WCAHS provides short hazard awareness sessions on a variety of health and safety topics, including ergonomics, chemical hazards, and more. Sessions are 1-2 hours and are often pulled from WOSH Specialist Training modules.
Community Health Outreach Workers (Promotores) Trainings
The trainings for promotores (lay health workers or community health outreach workers) explain health and safety rights and responsibilities of employers and employees under Cal/OSHA, Workers’ Compensation, and other Department of Labor laws.
The California dairy industry is the largest of any state. It contributes billions of dollars to the state’s economy and is a significant employer of agricultural labor. Dairy workers are especially at risk for injuries due to accidents with animals and machinery.
WCAHS provides materials, such as The Dairy Safety Training Guide, to assist dairy owners in conducting trainings for dairy workers on dairy safety. The guide was developed in collaboration with the California Worker Occupational Safety and Health Training and Education Program (WOSHTEP).
