California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) has made 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 legislation will require employers to create heat-illness prevention plans that could include access to cool-down areas and engineering and administrative controls.
Comments are due Tuesday, Nov. 20, to email@example.com.
NAFEM will continue to monitor and report on this issue as it relates to radiant heat in commercial kitchens.
