Cal/OSHA Updates Draft On Indoor Heat

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen? Not if you work there.

Radiant heat, and how it affects workers, has prompted California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) to make additional revisions to a draft standard that applies to all indoor work areas where the temperature equals or exceeds 90°F.

If approved, the draft standard will require employers to create heat-illness prevention plans that could include access to cool-down areas and engineering and administrative controls.

Comments may be submitted on the revised draft by Friday Feb. 22 to rs@dir.ca.gov.
