The California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) has released another revised draft of the proposed indoor heat illness regulation. Stakeholders have until Friday, February 22nd to submit comments on the new language.

In 2016, legislation was passed that requires Cal/OSHA to recommend a heat illness protocol for indoor workers to the Occupational Health and Safety Standards Board (Standards Board) for their review and/or approval by January 1, 2019. During this process, Cal/OSHA has held three “advisory” meetings with impacted stakeholders like CMTA and released several “informal” drafts of proposed language for our review. 

Manufacturers are strongly encouraged to review this newest document in light of your operational capabilities and provide immediate feedback to Nicole Rice, CMTA Policy Director on Labor, Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Policy at nrice@cmta.net
