In light of the National Weather Service’s most recent excessive heat watch alert, Cal/OSHA is reminding all employers to take steps to prevent heat illness during a period of high heat across the state. When the temperature is 95 degrees or more, certain employers must implement effective high-heat procedures like additional monitoring of workers for signs of heat illnesses, and those in agriculture are required to provide extra cool-down rest periods in addition to required breaks.
