Calif. State Fund To Host Restaurant Supervisor Safety Training

September 20, 2006

California’s State Compensation Insurance Fund will sponsor a free restaurant-safety training program for supervisors in Sacramento on September 20. The workshop is designed to help restaurant managers and owners create a comprehensive health and safety training program for their workers. The seminar will also examine how to reduce compensation costs and increase productivity by reducing injuries.

Featured speaker for the program will be Diane Bush, who coordinates the Restaurant Safety Training Program at U.C. Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP).

Workshop participants will receive educational materials including a restaurant safety-training guide, safety tip sheets, a safety orientation checklist, a model shoe policy, and fact sheets that address issues of concern when employing teens in restaurants.

The workshop will provide a one-hour safety training program tailored to restaurants. It will also show owners and managers how to engage workers in safety programs, identify ways to prevent injuries, and meet Cal/OSHA training requirements.

The seminar is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at State Fund’s Sacramento District Office, 2275 Gateway Oaks Drive. Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. and free parking is available. To register, call Angel Martinez at 916-924-6812, or send a fax to 916-567-4800. To register via e-mail, send a message to

The event is funded by the Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation.
