CDF Attorney Dena Harandi authors article "It's Getting Hot In Here: Complying With New California Heat Illness Regs" for the California Employment Law Letter May 11, 2015 publication.
Summertime is not just about fun in the sun for California employers with outdoor places of employment. You should take the time to familiarize yourself with and take measures to comply with the new regulations to the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health's (Cal/OSHA) Heal Illness Prevention Standards, which took effect May 1.
These new regulations specifically require the development and implementation of written procedures to comply with the standards as well as employee and supervisor training on your heat illness prevention plans. We encourage those of you who are required to comply with these new regulations to consult with competent California employment counsel for assistant.
