Cal/OSHA issued a High Heat Advisory for parts of Southern California as temperatures are expected to rise into the upper 90’s starting today and into early next week.
The agency is reminding employers to protect outdoor workers from the risk of heat related illness. California’s heat illness standards are the strongest in the country and require all employers with outdoor workers to take basic precautions to protect workers.
Special “High Heat” procedures are also required when temperatures reach or exceed 95 degrees for construction, landscaping, agricultural, oil and gas extraction, and transportation outdoor worksites.
