Big thanks!
Thanks to you all of you who participated in this year’s Central District Golf Tournament last Friday. We accomplished our first in-person event of the year!

It was great to see all of you on the course interacting with each other and having a good time, and I look forward to continuing to meet you all. Stay tuned for information regarding more upcoming District social events coming up in Wenatchee and Yakima.
As always, I am here if you have any feedback or suggestions!

L&I's emergency heat-stress rules
now in effect

AGCW's Safety Services Department released a chapter-wide Safety Bulletin on Tuesday, outlining the Department of Labor & Industries' new emergency rules for employers on heat-stress. The new regulations, which took effect July 13th, are in addition to existing rules that are in place annually from May through the end of September.
When the temperature is at or above 100 degrees, employers must respond to the extreme heat by providing shade or another sufficient means for employees to cool down; and ensuring workers have a paid cool-down rest period of at least ten minutes every two hours. Other rules also apply when temperatures exceed 89 degrees.
