Workers' Compensation Program:
Exclusively for California Fairs

No one wants one of their employees, co-workers or themselves, for that matter, to be injured on the job. But should something happen regardless, it's reassuring to know that nearly every working Californian is protected by workers' compensation thanks to a law passed by California's state legislature in 1913. This no-fault insurance, paid for by employers and supervised by the state, guarantees prompt, automatic benefits to workers injured on the job.

Please note: The workers' compensation forms provided on this website are for the use of California fairs and fairgrounds only.

Safety First
Although all fairgrounds are different in size and operations, there's a striking similarity in preventable accidents such as slips, trips and falls or back injuries caused by improper lifting. A large part of our job as manager of the fairs' Workers' Compensation pool is providing pool members with the information, tools and training they need to reduce all types of preventable accidents. In the event of an accident, CFSA also helps its members by handling claims and arranging benefits.

Think Safety, Work Safely, Watch This Video! CFSA's newest Video "Think Safety, Work Safely ~ Workers' Compensation: Accident Prevention, Investigation and Follow-Up", provides viewers with a quick overview of the components of an effective fairground Injury and Illness Prevention Plan, plus tips on investigating accidents involving fair employees and a look at the workers' compensation claim forms that are required.
