Cal/OSHA Reminds Employers to Protect Workers from High Heat

Cal/OSHA reminds employers to protect workers from heat illness, especially during high temperatures. Employers should provide fresh water, shade, rest breaks, and training on heat illness prevention. Specific high-heat procedures apply to industries like agriculture and construction when temperatures exceed 95°F. Employers must develop a written prevention plan and ensure effective communication methods for workers to contact supervisors.
