Emergency Operations Plan & Standard Operating Procedures Manual

The CGAEF Emergency Operations Plan & Standard Operating Procedures Manual is a comprehensive 200-page emergency preparedness guide that replaces the CGA Emergency Planning and Procedures Manual released in 2000.

The manual is a FREE CGA membership benefit and can be downloaded online. Your membership allows unlimited downloads within your company. Non-CGA member company employees may purchase a copy of the manual for $750 plus tax and shipping and handling by contacting foundation@cagrocers.com.

The downloaded version replaces the material in the 2000 CGA Emergency Planning and Procedures Manual red binder. Once downloaded, the manual should be photocopied double-sided and placed in the binder.

The CGA Educational Foundation conducted a one-hour information seminar on using the new EOP Manual. To view this presentation, click here. If you have questions regarding the Emergency Operations Plan and Standard Operating Procedures Manual, contact Brianne Page or call (916) 448-3545.

Grocery Compliance Toolkit

As a large state that is home to nearly 40 million consumers, California business operators have to make sense of a robust regulatory environment. To assist grocery retailers, CGA & the CGA Educational Foundation have partnered to create a Grocery Compliance Toolkit with accompanying educational resources to explain retailer obligations.

Regulations covered in our Toolkit suite of products include:

  • Hazardous Waste Disposal
  • Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Labor and Employment Law
  • Proposition 65
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Food Safety Modernization Act

Often, well-intended or unintentional consumer and employee behavior can lead to significant enforcement problems for grocers. And the high dollar settlements provide a powerful incentive for enforcement entities to prioritize punishment rather than work with the grocery industry to reach a better level of compliance.
