Heat Stress Prevention: Critical, Compliant Steps to Keep Workers Safe in Hot Working Environments - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to ensure your organization’s Heat Stress Prevention Program is compliant and prepared for the hottest months of the year.

With the hot summer months approaching, it is crucial for employers to reevaluate their Heat Stress Prevention Programs to ensure the safety and well-being of employees exposed to hot working conditions. Employers must identify potential hot working environments and develop procedures to effectively protect workers from heat-related illnesses.

While federal OSHA does not have a specific standard for heat stress, employers can and have been cited under the General Duty Clause for exposing their workers to heat-related hazards. Moreover, several states, including California, have implemented specific regulations addressing heat stress. Under California’s stringent standard employers must have an effective written heat illness prevention plan which provides adequate procedures and training to ensure the provision of sufficient water, acclimatization methods, access to shade, and protocols for high-heat and emergency response situations. Employers in other states would do well to take note as well, as California’s comprehensive standard offers an effective template for addressing heat-related hazards.

Use this on-demand webinar when Raymond Perez of Jackson Lewis will provide highly valuable information, including best practices, compliance tips, and more, to help you develop, implement, and maintain a program that will protect your employees from heat stress and keep you out of enforcement crosshairs.

You’ll learn:

  • How OSHA’s General Duty Clause may impose a requirement to reduce or eliminate recognized heat hazards How to identify heat stress issues and hazardous hot working conditions
  • How to recognize and assess the signs and symptoms of heat illness
  • Proactive preventive measures to protect employees, including written Heat Stress Prevention Programs, acclimatization procedures, provision of adequate water and shade, and supervisor and employee training to assess and address heat-induced symptoms
