Cal/OSHA updates indoor heat-related illness draft
California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) has made additional revisions to a draft standard that applies to all indoor work areas where the temperature equals or exceeds 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
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.
Interested parties are invited to submit comments on the revised draft by Friday Feb. 22, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NAFEM will continue to monitor and report on this issue as it relates to radiant heat in commercial kitchens.
