California Employers Are Required to Take
These 4 Steps to Prevent Heat Illness:
Train all employees and supervisors about heat illness prevention.
Provide enough fresh water so that each employee can drink at least one quart per hour, or four 8-ounce glasses, of water per hour, and encourage them to do so.
Shade @ 80 Degrees
Provide access to shade and encourage employees to take a cool-down rest in the shade for at least five minutes. They should not wait until they feel sick to cool dow.
Develop and implement written procedures for complying with the Cal/OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Standard. Have copies of written standards on hand where employees are working, including remote locations.
