On October 27, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on “Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings.” 

The ANPRM provides information on heat stress in both indoor and outdoor workplaces and shares prevention measures. Importantly, OSHA seeks public comment on heat stress in the workplace as well as suggestions for prevention of heat-related injury and illness.

Read OSHA’s ANPRM on heat stress here.
