Workplace Safety Program

An Accident Prevention Program (APP) is the foundation of your overall safety and health program and will help you document and organize your safety procedures. All employers are required to create and follow an APP and keep it up to date.

Safety Training Materials for Small to Mid-Sized Washington Wineries

This booklet focuses on the safety topics most small to mid-sized wineries should consider including in their Accident Prevention Program. The topic outlines have been streamlined from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries’ (L&I) standards, have been adapted specifically for wineries, and have received rigorous review by L&I. Sample safety forms and supplemental information are included to help you augment or establish your winery safety program.

Labor and Industries Topics

Washington State’s public health emergency proclamations for COVID-19 ended October 31, 2022; however, COVID-19 is still a recognized workplace hazard that employers must address.

Employers are legally required to display 3 free L&I posters in their workplace to inform employees of their rights and responsibilities. Do you have remote employees who don’t come to the workplace? You can send the posters to them.

Workers are protected by laws and rules covering workers' wages, working conditions and overtime pay.
