INFORMATION
Training Overview

Are your employees suffering from heat illness? Discover OSHA’s proposed heat injury prevention requirements.

On October 27, 2021, OSHA published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) for Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings. Occupational exposure to heat can result in injuries, disease, reduced productivity, and death.

According to OSHA, 18 of the last 19 years were the hottest on record. Summer is here, and experts don’t expect this year to be better. As a result, workers are experiencing heat stress and heat illness at alarming rates, even in areas where heat was not previously a danger.

OSHA requires employers to protect employees from heat stress. You must assess and recognize heat risk and take steps to keep employees safe.
