New Heat Regs to Take Effect May 1

Cal/OSHA is asking stakeholders to provide the agency questions about new heat illness prevention regulations that are in need of clarification. Western Growers members can send comments and concerns directly to Cal/OSHA, Western Growers, or both.  Western Growers, in conjunction with the Heat Illness Prevention Coalition, will send a letter on behalf of the coalition.  

The anticipated effective date of the new regulation is now May 1, not April 1 as earlier reported, subject to approval by the Office of Administrative Law.
