Heat illness killed 13 California workers in 2005. Does your company have a plan in place to make sure your workers don't become part of this gruesome statistic?
The California Code of Regulations, Title 8, SS3395 states that employers must plan in advance for heat spells and take the necessary steps to ensure your employees don't succumb to warmer weather. This includes ensuring your workers have plenty of clean, cool water, access to a shaded rest area, a communication plan, and written procedures.
At CSTC, based in Bakersfield, CA, we have been working closely with Cal/OSHA to develop a new Heat Illness Prevention Program. Call us today for more information!
