Following the issuance of excessive heat warnings for many areas throughout California by the National Weather Service’s issuance, Cal/OSHA sent out a notice reminding employers to protect their outdoor workers from heat illness. The greater San Diego area and the Inland Empire east of Los Angeles as well as cities in the San Francisco Bay Area are expected to experience 100+ degree weather this week.

The Department of Labor has just announced a change to their normal process for injury and illness data. Beginning in July of 2017, all companies with 250 or more employees will be required to report their injury and illness data directly to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The agency will then post this information online for access to anyone from the public.
