Heat Stress Prevention In California: Critical, Compliant Steps To Keep Workers Safe In Hot Working Environments

Date: Recorded
With the heat of summer just around the corner, if you have employees working outdoors you may want to review your work practices to ensure you are in compliance with Cal/OSHA’s heat illness prevention requirements.

The rule, which went into effect in May 2015, includes new requirements for: provision of water, access to shade, high heat procedures, emergency response procedures, periodic breaks acclimatization, training, cool down recovery periods, and heat illness prevention plan requirement. The objective of the regulation is to prevent heat exhaustion or strokes and to keep workers safe in the heat.

Addressing risk factors associated with hot environments requires careful consideration to address all potential factors for worker protection and compliance. Understanding the risk factors, both indoor and outdoor, allows for identifying the approaches to counter each of them and assure that all workers are adequately protected and safe throughout the summer.
