Protecting Your Employees from Heat Illness
Do you know how to protect your workers in the heat? In partnership with Cal/OSHA, we invite you to attend this in-person webinar to learn more about what’s required to keep your employees from suffering from heat illness and how you can avoid heat-related citations from Cal/OSHA.
California is notorious for its hot summer temperatures. When the body heats up faster than it can cool itself, mild to severe illness may develop. Air temperature, humidity, clothing, and physical activity are among the factors that increase your employees’ risk of heat illness.
