News Release
ERRORS in 6/5/19 release re: heat safety programs! - 06/07/19


> PLEASE DO NOT PUBLISH information from the release sent on 6/5/2019 called: "Farm Bureau urges agriculture employers to prioritize heat safety" 

Dear subscribers to Oregon Farm Bureau’s FlashAlert Newswire:

Unfortunately, there was misinformation in the news release sent out yesterday regarding ag employers and heat safety programs for employees. There is NO “requirement” by Oregon OSHA for employers to have a heat safety program in place; there is only a “local emphasis program” that’s been launched by OSHA.  

We are working to get accurate information and will send out a corrected release soon.

Please don’t publish the information that was sent yesterday. If you have already posted it online, please take it down.

We sincerely apologize for this mistake and for any resulting confusion and/or extra work this may have caused you or your team. We are making changes so this sort of thing doesn’t happen again.

Sincerely,

Cory Stengel, chair of the Oregon Farm Bureau Health & Safety Committee

Anne Marie Moss, Oregon Farm Bureau
