Ag Health & Safety
Employers are required to follow regulated health and safety protocols throughout the year, and worker safety is paramount during any disaster. In the case of fire, additional protections are required and recommended.
Have N95 masks at your property before you need them. Here are the NIOSH-approved N95 Particulate Filtering Facepiece Respirators you can order from. The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation partners with the Napa County Agricultural Commissioner's Office to distribute masks for farmworkers during emergency smoky conditions and to comply with Cal/OSHA standards. Request Your Masks by emailing email@example.com call the office at 707-944-8311.
To filter out fine particles, respirators must be labeled N-95, N-99, N-100, R-95, P-95, P-99, or P-100, and must be labeled approved by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
Approved respiratory protective equipment is necessary for employees working in outdoor locations designated by local air quality management districts as “Very Unhealthy,” “Unhealthy” or “Hazardous”
It takes more effort to breathe through a respirator, and it can increase the risk of heat stress. Frequent breaks are advised. Workers feeling dizzy, faint or nauseous are advised to go to a clean area, remove the respirator and seek medical attention
Respirators should be discarded if they become difficult to breathe through or if the inside becomes dirty
