As we previously reported in Spotlight, the California Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board approved amendments to the state’s Heat Illness Prevention (HIP) Regulations (Cal. Code of Regs. tit. 8, § 3395). The revisions are expected to go into effect on May 1, 2015.
In response to questions from stakeholders about how the new requirements will be implemented, Cal/OSHA has posted guidance on the new requirements on their heat illness prevention page. A summary of the changes is available in English and Spanish.
