Cal/OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Guidance and Resources

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. Heat Illness Prevention Procedures apply at temperatures above 80°F. Additional high-heat procedures apply when temperatures exceed 95°F. Employers must develop a written prevention plan and ensure effective communication methods for workers to contact supervisors.
