With above normal temperatures expected in California through next Monday, Cal/OSHA issued a high heat advisory to all employers reminding them to protect outdoor workers from the risks associated with heat illness. Temperatures in Southern California are expected to be 15-25 degrees above normal. Above average temperatures are also forecast for northern California.
California’s heat illness regulations were put in place in 2005, but were recently amended. Those clarified standards went into effect May 1, 2015. Members are urged to protect workers by adhering to the new standards, especially those that address high heat procedures.
