The Department of Industrial Relations' Division of Occupational Safety and Health has assessed fines of $77,900 against a Galt-based farm labor contractor found to be in violation of California's heat illness prevention regulations.

An investigation of Solis Farm Labor was opened May 29 after the death of Maria Vasquez Jimenez, an employee of Merced Farm Labor Contractor, who had been working in a San Joaquin County vineyard for nine hours with little water and no shade. Employees of Solis Farm Labor were working in the same vineyard as Jimenez and other employees of Merced Farm Labor Contractor, according to a statement released by the department Tuesday.
