California created the first regulations for heat illness prevention more than 10 years ago.  There is no question that those standards have helped reduce the number of heat-related illnesses and deaths associated with exposure.  Initially, it took a few years for high heat industries to adopt the standards, but they have now become a normal part of everyday work life for most operations in California.
