Santa Rosa/San Francisco, CA (CompNewsNetwork) - California State Compensation Insurance Fund, in partnership with the California Utility Public Safety Alliance, is hosting a seminar entitled “Contractor Beware: Safety Around Overhead and Underground Gas and Electric Lines.” Offered at no charge as part of State Fund's Employer Education Series, the one-hour morning presentation includes sessions for construction and agriculture. This event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 1, at State Fund's Regional Office in Santa Rosa, Calif.

Featured speaker Charles Basham, Manager of Public Safety at Southern California Edison, will discuss safe work practices around utilities and how to assist others with jobsite safety.
